Colombian singer/songwriter Santiago Cruz is wrapping up Women's History Month with a powerful music video to go along with his anthem of female empowerment "Contar hasta 3 (o hasta 10)." 

Paying tribute to strong, hard-working women around the world, Cruz features stories of sacrifice and perseverance in the visual, including those of female athletes like Colombian boxer Sisley Chow Siado and skaters Daniela & Susa. 

The impactful clip was filmed in Medellíin, Colombia and directed by Laura Mora. Watch the video for "Contar hasta 3 (o hasta 10)" below: 

"Contar hasta 3 (o hasta 10)" was penned by Cruz and Latin Grammy-winning producer Julio Reyes Copello.

Throughout Women's History Month, Cruz performed the poignant track at a women's prison in Bogotá and Barranquilla and at non-profit organizations dedicated to empower women.

"The Colombian woman, women from every part of the world, powerful, courageous, fighters, the ones that fall and stand up again, the ones that build... This is a little bit of what we lived," Cruz writes in a Facebook caption for the video. 

#YoCuentoHasta3

Si eres una mujer poderosa, valiente, luchadora, o tienes la fortuna de conocer mujeres así, dale like --y compártelo-- #YoCuentoHasta3 -- La mujer colombiana, las mujeres de todas partes, poderosas, valientes, luchadoras, las que se levantan todos los días, las que se equivocan e igual se levantan, las que construyen, las que son columna vertebral... Esto fue un poco de lo que vivimos la semana del 6 al 10 de Marzo. Y que mejor marco que las palabras de Jineth Bedoya Lima #NoEsHoraDeCallar
