“I’m honored to have “Your Love for Me”, a song I wrote for my parents from my EP Peek Away, nominated for The Independent Music Awards in the LOVE SONG Category! As a songwriter, a daughter and a mom with young children, I was so grateful to express appreciation in this song for two people who have given me everything. They’ve always believed in my musical purpose and given me the strength & faith to make it happen for myself, from owning my own label to producing my music to touring Internationally. Now for them to witness this recognition by my Colleagues, elevates and inspires me. Thank you to all the musicians and to all of my community of support. I hope you will take a moment and vote in the Vox Pop Jukebox public award for “Your Love for Me” in the LOVE SONG category.”
