I’m going to tell you a story…
I wrote the song “I believe” when I was going through one of the hardest times in my life. My Father passed away 3 years ago. I wrote this song through my grieving process to tell my story of how when you love someone you have to let them go. You must let go of your sadness one day, so you can shine and be happy again. When you hold on to any negativity, it blocks you from all the good that surrounds you. This song is dedicated to anyone who has lost someone special to them and or is going through a hard time in their life. I promise you life always gets better. If you can keep focusing on the positive and take baby steps.
The music video inspiration came from a dream. Many songs I write come from either dreams or concepts I really like. I dreamt of a women who was dancing and transformed into an owl, and she kept dancing back and forth from owl to human with so much joy and freedom. I feel very lucky that I could share this dream with Eric and Sarah (DJ Rise Ashen and the dancer in music video), and they really came through with the concept and helping me express my dream into the music video.
Believe, I believe in you,
Dream, a little bit bigger,
These wings felt flight for the first time the first time.
Holding on to this sadness made me remind myself, that
holding on keeps my hands and heart closed inside from the love that touches me like sunshine
Believe, I believe in you dream a little bit bigger.
