I am so ecstatic about this release. I wrote the song when I came home from the @americanidol finale. It’s all about chasing the dream: moving to LA, feeling like everything is changed, and just enjoying the opportunities that I now have because of American Idol.

This song means a lot to me, and so do the people who helped me create it. First and foremost, a HUGE thank you goes out to @pdetti and @moderndaymusicschool for producing this song. Paul, you’ve always given me all the help I could ever ask for and more, and I can’t be thankful enough! You have always had my best intentions in mind and have always helped me to succeed, and for that I am so grateful!

I also would like to give a huge shoutout to @mikeneedham for laying down the bass tracks of the song and @Tommybenedetti for playing drums on the record! You guys really helped the song come together, and I am so happy I got to work with y’all on this!

I want to thank all of YOU GUYS for the support and love you’ve given me. You guys are all so appreciative and encouraging towards me and I can’t thank you enough. I’m so grateful that you guys allow me to continue chasing my dream. I love you all so much.
