“Music to me is a way of life, an escapism, and a therapy for the human soul. Music is one of the most powerful tools on this earth, it can alter people’s feelings and emotions, and best of all inspire. With encouraging, uplifting, and impacting the human race in a positive way as the main focus of my life… music is my avenue, helper, and soul mate. I will use music to inspire, to build up, and to lift spirits higher.
Music to me has always been a way to cope with things in my life, to help me take my mind off of the bad, and or feel as if my situation is related to someone else’s. I want to inspire people to dream and when they hear my music I want them to feel a little greater than they did before.” -Sarena Rae
