I just want to thank you so much.
This is such a big deal, not only for us, but for all other independent musicians and artists that spend most of their time struggling.
This - the fact that we're standing here tonight, the fact that we're able to hold this - it's just to prove, no matter how far out your dreams are, it's possible.
And, you know, fair play to those who dare to dream and don't give up.And this song was written from a perspective of hope and hope, at the end of the day, connects us all, no matter how different we are. "
