Kim about 'Birthday song'

I wrote it for my little niece Scarlett, who is now nearly 18 and I think probably about to join us on stage quite soon. It's a song about finding strength within yourself when life gets really tough, and it's a strength we all have, but sometimes we forget it. It was a message to her as a child, to let her know that as she grew up she could always rely on the voice inside her, to help get her through the tough times. (1)
