I needed to take a minute now that things have calmed down in my life and “Broken Dreams” is finally released – to say THANK YOU!
Thank you to YOU reading this. To every single person who has shared my music video or photo or iTunes link and especially to those of you who have bought a copy of “Broken Dreams“. You have NO idea how much it means to me that you are all LOVING the song AND the music video and love it enough to share it with everyone you know.
I can’t say enough how grateful I am for everyone’s support. Seeing this video come to life has been an incredible experience in itself never mind the fact that I have one of my songs finished and released to the public. These are TWO huge milestones for me and my career and have been dreams of mine for as long as I can remember.
When I was a little girl and dreaming of being a recording artist, I was obsessed with music videos. I am a very visual person (still am) and I would listen to my favourite artists and idol’s at the time (they varied and changed often) on my CD walkman. Like all young girls have at one time or another, I fantasized about being the star of a music video to my favourite songs. This fantasy grew even worse when I got older and wrote songs of my own. I would constantly picture what my music video would look like to the song I was writing and create and imagine new worlds within my music.
To have been given the opportunity to do this in real life, produce a music video for a song I have written, is seriously unbelievable. I actually have to pinch myself sometimes to prove to myself that this is real, that this video is mine and all of this is my life. This is what I have wanted since I was a little girl and I have been working SO hard towards for as long as I can remember. I have been through more than most should have in their childhood and teen years but it has all made me stronger and prepared me for this moment. I am a major believer that everything happens for a reason and preach that to anyone who knows me – so this is so wonderful to be experiencing. To have gone through major low’s and worked so hard to get to a good place and finally be seeing all my hard work and dedication coming to fruition is such a humbling experience. It truly is all about the climb, as queen Miley Cyrus would say.
I can’t say thank you enough to the guys who worked SO damn hard on this music video and brought it to life. Julian and Zack – you two are seriously super-men and totally rocked this video and made it everything I imagined and then some. These guys are two of the MOST talented directors/cinematographers that I have had the privilege to know and I am SO blessed to have found them and worked with them on this project. You two did such a fabulous job on this video and I hope to work with you again in the future. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
My friends and family – who all have been BEYOND amazing and supportive of me and this journey of mine. Thank you for all coming to my pre-release party last week and showing up to show how much you care. It really means the world to me that you all came and that you have all done SO much for me, especially lately with this release. It is SO much easier knowing that I have each and every single one of you by my side and along for this crazy ride I am embarking upon.
To my Nana in heaven who can’t be here with me. I know you are looking down on me from heaven and are smiling and so proud. You were always my biggest fan and believed in me unfailingly my entire life and you are part of the reason I am where I am right now. I dedicate this song and video to you. I know that if you were here right now you would be crying tears of joy with me and supporting me every step of the way along with the rest of our amazing family. It hurts my heart every single day not having you here with me but I am so glad to have an angel like you in heaven looking out for me and helping me make this dream come true behind the scenes. I love you more than words.
To ALL of my supporters (because calling you all “fans” right now feels super weird lol). You guys are FREAKING AMAZING! I am probably the most modest and down to earth person you will ever meet, those of you who have met me already know this, so calling anyone a fan is so strange to me. I seriously love each and every one of you – whether I know you and have met you yet or not. One day I hope to meet ALL of you and give you the biggest hug in the world for believing in me and helping me get even this far right now. I have been building this dream of mine for so long and those of you who have been around since day 1 when I started my YouTube channel – I can’t thank enough. I have been making videos for years now and have played around with all of my ideas, which is why I love YouTube so much as a creative outlet. Furthermore, it has given me an audience to share my passions with and that is even more of a privilege. You guys have supported all I have done and continue to do and I am so grateful and love you guys so much! Thank you for being a part of my world and helping me build my dream.
I can’t wait to see what happens next and share more of what I have been working on with you all. There is SO much ahead and I am SO excited. This is only the beginning, trust me 🙂
I love you all to pieces,
If you haven’t seen the video yet or just want to watch it again here it is <3
