'TRY'. It's an action word. Something we do when we want to accomplish something. The word 'try' implies that you are putting forth a degree of effort towards a goal, whatever that goal may be. You give it your best shot. Pull out all the stops. Go all out. Leave it all on the table; the court; the stage. You TRY. Success is what's relative, because though many people may succeed, few truly try. It's in the doing your best and it's in the trying that character emerges, strength appears, and winners are made. I believe that we are created to make manifest every purpose, every ability, every calling and gifting in our lives simply because we are human and ever so capable of greatness, and that the mere act of trying makes possible everything we could dream of. Because of that, who are we NOT to try? Who are we to say we can't? Who are we to give up on ourselves? To say it's too hard or too late? Or believe that we're too young or too old? We owe it to ourselves to try. What all could we accomplish if we only try?
This little magic word is the title of my upcoming single, and I have never felt more excited and passionate about my music and the message it's carrying than in this season as I finally get to introduce you to what's been so dear to my heart. But before I let the entire musical cat out of the bag, I want to fill you in on an aspect that is entirely new to me in this journey. Because this song and message are so very special to me, and because it's been a dream of my own to film my first music video, I've decided to pair the two pieces of my heart and make TRY not only something you can hear but see as well, and I'm gonna finally do it - I'm making a music video! The storyboard is set, locations have been scouted, film crew is pumped and ready to go, and we're almost there!
So are you ready for this? Because I am! I've got just the right song, message to share, and moment in time to make this happen, and THIS IS IT, guys! The music is finished and ready for release, so all that's left now is to film the visual for this 1st single, and I'd absolutely love your help to cross that finish line! One of the beauties of being an independent artist is the freedom to chart your own musical and creative path, and partnering with amazing individuals as you go is part of what makes the adventure that much sweeter! So are you in? You ready to do this together? I can't wait to share this with you and take you on the journey with me as we introduce the world to TRY!
See you there!
Risks and challenges
One of the challenges every independent artist learns to navigate is the art of playing many different rolls in order to achieve your goals. I've been super blessed in this season to have some of the most talented and dedicated individuals I know partner with me and work together to accomplish the tasks we have ahead, so despite this video being a rather large undertaking, I'm not on my own this time! We're going to make this happen together! Teamwork makes the dream work, right?Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
