This song was written and sung from my heart and to win this Award of Recognition for the music video is very humbling indeed. My journey has been very difficult, to say the least, but that is what makes this time even more special and magical for me. The beauty of surviving such tragedies is that you appreciate the good days that much more. I couldn't be happier right now!"
