Rising singer and songwriter Shirra has dropped a new single with deeply personal meaning that also has a message of hope for Americans in the midst of global unrest.
As Americans grapple with the COVID-19 pandemic and the civil unrest caused by George Floyd’s death in Minnesota, the artist Shirra has released the song “We Are One,” now available where songs can be downloaded.
According to Shirra, her new song’s lyrics resonate with current events across the U.S. today.
“From the pandemic to Black Lives Matter protests over George Floyd’s death, people are coming together,” she said. “Just as my song title says, I want to remind the world that we are one.”
Shirra believes her powerful new ballad’s larger message about resilience will have universal appeal.
“The chorus is about not giving up or giving in, even when everything is against you and you have nothing else,” she said. “It’s about faith, hope, and believing in yourself even when no one does.”
Shirra originally penned her song to express her own life experiences. It wasn’t until later that a new meaning emerged as people are uniting all over the world to fight for good.
“When I wrote the chorus, I was writing about my personal experiences,” Shirra said.
She now envisions the song as an anthem for crowds of protestors shouting “We Are One” in unison.
“I believe music is what binds us and reminds us how human we all are,” she said.
