My song “Dream” is like, “This is my dream.”
It’s the dream that I have for myself, and that I want to go to a place where I can get out of bed and go to school.
I want my friends to be like, What are you doing?
That’s my song.
Dreams are my song, and I love my dream.
I just hope that I get to do something with it, because I’m still getting used to this life.
I’ve got to work on my vocals.
I don’t have a voice, but I’m trying to get better.
I love singing.
Nick Jaspar: You have the chance to sing on this album.
What is it like being a part on the “Dreaming” track?
It’s a great opportunity for me, because this is the first time that I’ve done it as a solo artist.
I’m very fortunate that I was given that opportunity to sing the song, because it’s really nice to be on the same side as the person that wrote it.
So, I’m super happy for that.

The whole day, there’s always one or two people who come up to me and ask me about it.
The other night, I went up to the stage and I just sang my song for the first song of the day, which is “Dream.”
That’s when they started to cry.
That was kind of a crazy moment.
Nick was just like, That was a really good moment.
So I was so proud of myself.

And it’s all a blessing.
