KANDLE RELEASES NEW VIDEO FOR "NOT UP TO ME" IN ASSOCIATION WITH CANADIAN WOMEN’S FOUNDATION
Kandle presents her brand new video for "Not Up to Me"!
"This is the story of a girl who’s slipping into darkness. Many young females today deal with so much emotional and physical abuse. However, whether it is from fear or insecurity, some girls don’t feel they deserve the love and assistance they need to get back on their feet. I’ve been that girl, I’ve fought for that girl, and I can prove it is possible to find light at the end of the tunnel." - Kandle
“In my personal experience, other women have created the most insecurities in my life. I was drawn to this story because it’s one of those rare occasions where sisterhood reveals its true potential.” - Natalie Robison, video director (Much Music Video Awards winner)
To support her message of empowerment and self-confidence for girls across Canada, Kandle is encouraging everyone to help a girl believe in herself and realize she matters by making a donation to the Girls’ Fund at the Canadian Women’s Foundation: www.canadianwomen.org.
