I am very excited to introduce everyone to my new song “Good Day”, the title track and first single off of my new LP. This song is very special to me as it helped me get through a very tough time in my life.
As a relatively new artist, I needed a full-time job to support my music, but about a year ago I was informed by Chicago Public Schools that I was being laid off of my job working with special education students because of budget cuts. This news devastated me as I felt I had much more to give to the kids I was working with and also left me without an income, putting most of the initial burden of paying the mortgage, bills, etc. on my wife.
I have since picked up multiple side hustles such as driving for Uber, substitute teaching and working part-time at a car dealership to help support myself and my wife, but I continued to feel down and depressed at times because of my tenuous situation.
The idea for “Good Day” stemmed from these distressed feelings. I decided I needed to take a stand and start being more positive about my current situation and life in general; recognizing that maybe losing my job was a sign to give me more time to work on my music.
I then went on my computer and started going through beat libraries, and when I found a beat that put me in a good mood I started singing over it, and the first words that came to mind were “no need to be stressed, I got air in my chest, my life has a purpose, today will be worth it!” and the rest of it came together from there.
I loved my job working with the kids of Chicago, but started to realize that I could make a difference in other ways as well, that God placed me on this earth with a purpose, and that purpose is to spread a positive message and inspire the world through my music.
The goal of "Good Day" is to give people hope all over the world who may be dealing with depression, anxiety or just having some bad luck. I want to inspire them not to give up and show them that things can get better. My hope is that this song encourages people to believe in themselves because God created each one of us for a bigger purpose, all we have to do is discover it!
