Callista Clark is bringing her empowering anthem, “It’s ‘Cause I Am” to life with a brand new video that showcases all of the sides of her personality. 

The video shows Clark through the decades and brings her multidimensional personality to life through various scenes. Pairing perfectly with the song’s message, the video was directed by Audrey Ellis Fox and is available to watch below. 

“I couldn’t be more excited to release my first music video! This is the kind of thing I’ve always dreamed about. Being on set and watching it come to life was surreal.” Callista shared. “’It’s ‘Cause I Am’ has completely changed my life. I’m absolutely amazed with the way everything came together and I can’t wait for y’all to see it!”

Co-written by the 17-year-old alongside Cameron Jaymes and Laura Veltz, the empowering anthem finds Clark embracing her self-confidence and making no apologies for who she is.

“I can’t help that I’m one of a kind/I’m more than meets the eye/If I ain’t what you like Well that’s alright/You want a one-dimensional woman/It’s okay, I understand/If I seem too complicated for ya Mmm it’s ‘cause I am,” she sings on the chorus. 

Clark recently released her debut EP, Real To Me. The singer/songwriter is also a multi-instrumentalist, with the know-how to play eight instruments: ukulele, acoustic guitar, piano, bass, electric guitar, keytar, banjo and a mandolin.
