Lindsay Ell has revealed that she is a sexual assault survivor and shared an emotional new ballad titled “Make You” that tells the dark story.
“I was raped when I was 13, and it happened again when I was 21,” Ell told People magazine. “The song only talks about the first time. It’s just a difficult thing to talk about, and it’s something that I process every day still,.”
“It’s gonna make you hate yourself / When you didn’t hate yourself at all / It’s gonna make you build a fortress / Where you never had a wall,” she sings on the track, which was released in honor of Global Forgiveness Day.
Ell said she first shared her story with a few girls aged 12-18 who had similar experiences during a visit to help launch the music program “Youth For Tomorrow” three years ago.
The Canadian country music singer wrote “Make You” in collaboration with country singer-songwriter Brandy Clark.
