I've never been a quitter, but when you get hit with a disease that requires every once of strength, it's easy to just throw in the towel. My heart was broken.

I learned that quitting was the easy part, but continuing in the direction of your path requires a lot heart. I'd written plenty of songs while recovering from breast cancer treatment with the idea that maybe one day, when i'm 100%, I'd record them.

And, although i felt alone at times the only thing I kept penning where celebratory lyrics. Positive lyrics. It's as if the "recovered me" was already present. However, my body didn't quite feel that way. "How was this possible", I asked myself.

How can I be going through something so intense and I am writing as if I was fully healed? But, as i look back, I remembered when I was diagnosed, how all I wanted to do was just recover. And I did!  I am renewed.

I was played amazing production and I couldn't help to choose such an infectious beat like the one "Alegria" has. It was perfect. I brought home the beat and I felt so fulfilled because this time around I was no longer on training wheels.

 "Alegria" is here! and available on iTunes and Cdbaby.
