Here’s what we know about D.C. singer Carolyn Malachi: She loves to attach her music to a good cause. In her 2011 video for “Beautiful Dreamer,” the statuesque D.C. native consoled a young bully victim. This summer, Malachi headlined a local benefit show to aid independent artists in developing countries.

Out this week, Malachi’s video for her bright, upbeat track “Free Your Mind” focuses on a struggling young dancer determined to improve her steps. At first, she stumbles through rehearsals, but dedicates herself to practicing, and finally nails the routine. Like the “Dreamer” vid, Malachi takes a backseat to the young actress’ story. No surprise there.

“Free Your Mind” is the second single from Malachi’s forthcoming album, GOLD.
