She brings a lightness into the dark that helps us keep our flames burning bright.
Shira shares of the track:
"I wrote this song right before I left for my first 12 city solo tour. I was terrified, but I also had that curl in my toes that told me something good is about to happen... This is a "behind the scenes" music video I edited of my 2019 USA and European tours."
