“Beautiful Life” is a song that celebrates the joy and beauty of life, even in the face of challenges and difficulties.

We don’t need much to be happy / Just a little bit of love / And a little bit of sunshine / And we’ll be alright

We don’t need much to be beautiful / Just a little bit of grace / And a little bit of kindness / And we’ll shine
