“Real beauty comes from the inside” is the message Jon Mullane (http://www.jonmullane.com) and
director/producer Dillon Garland were trying to convey in the video for Jon Mullane's song “Born
Beautiful”, which picked up the award for Best Independent Music Video at the 7th Annual Hollywood
Music in Media Awards (http://www.hmmawards.com/hmma-winners/), presented at the Fonda
Theatre on November 17, 2016. Mullane graciously accepted his award, thanking the organizers of the
HMMA, complementing the audience by telling everyone present they are all “beautiful, inside and out”,
and saying the inspiration behind the song can be found right in its title, “We are all ‘Born Beautiful’!”
The inspiring video is receiving significant recognition of late, having also recently won the 2016 Music
Video of the Year Award at the International Music & Entertainment Awards in Nashville, TN.

“Born Beautiful”, the current single from Mullane’s album SHINE encourages all of us to embrace the
beauty we can find within ourselves, and through this song and its video, in which a young woman
rejects suicide, Jon has formed partnerships with mental health organizations, including the Canadian
Mental Health Association CMHA (www.cmha.ca), the National Alliance on Mental Illness
(www.nami.org), and The Campaign to Change Direction (www.changedirection.org), to help raise
awareness and change the culture of mental health.
