This song brings together three different stories of dark or desperate life situations.
My music is always a direct product of who I am and what I’m going through. My music is my life and it reflects all those around me, family, friends, experiences all rolled into one package.
As a third-generation singer and entertainer, I have no other choice in the matter. I can’t do anything else but make music. It’s the only thing in my life that ever has or will feel right.
Since I released “Perfect World” and was last on New Music Monday back in 2015...
