Jon Canem is a 22-year-old singer/songwriter and music producer, who lives in Cheltenham.
For his tender years, Jon harbours a deep passion for music and writes inspirational and uplifting music, using lyrics that truly matter to him. Beautiful is a song that expresses his own feelings of despair and insecurities and what one can do to alleviate them.
Like many people, Jon suffers from those dark days that seem to hit us all at some point in our lives. Mental ill health affects many people in a multitude of different ways. From dark thoughts to suicide.
Jon wrote this song from the heart, as he does with all his material. It's a song about realising you are not alone; you are not ugly in any sense of the word… you're simply beautiful. An uplifting track that aims to heal, create awareness and raise money for an amazing mental health charity.
