“The greatest songs that have ever been recorded tell the story of what you feel. It is the passion deep inside of you that longs to come out. The thoughts, prayers, heart, and mind that drive your creativity need to shine when you write a song. Then you have written a great song and it will connect with hearts across the world.”
