Think You Can Dance, which happens to be a ridiculously huge show that I didn’t even know and the dance community alone is bananas. So, she sent a demo and like that stuffs not suppose to actually happen. It’s like, oh cool, good luck with that. And then um, They used it. Yeah, they actually used it. Then, on June thirtieth of last year, they played it on the show Hundreds and thousands of people went and downloaded it. The next day my whole life changed and
I flew to New York City, signed a record deal and I’ve been making my album. It’s madness. It’s one of those stories. Like Cinderella or something. you hear, but doesn’t really happen. Yeah, that’s what everybody said. It was kind of like, whoa, we haven’t seen this in a long time. What was it about that song do you think connected with people?
