“Orange Is the New Black’s” Laverne Cox is among the diverse group of women John Legend tapped for his latest video.

The video for "You & I (Nobody in the World)" dropped Thursday, the same day Cox made Emmys history as the first openly transgender acting nominee. She'll compete in the guest actress in a comedy series category for her work as Sophia Burset on Netflix's “Orange.”

"You and I" highlights women of diverse ages, races and body types as they inspect themselves in the mirror. The video, which also features Legend's model wife Chrissy Teigen, aims to promote positive body image and raise money for charities focused on women and girls via Legend's #OperationGirl campaign.
