THANKS TO ALL THE MOM BLOGGERS WHO SACRIFICED THEIR BUSY SCHEDULES TO BE INVOLVED. CHECK OUT THEY'RE COOL BLOGS!


THE STORY BEHIND THE VIDEO

If you want to know how God feels about you, look at the women in your life.

On April 24th I did a concert at a conference for professional bloggers where over 500+ Highly active social media personalities from 46 Us States and 4 countries attended.

After the performance, one of the bloggers said "Why don't you do a video with us blogger mums?"

Well you know me, my little english brain started churning and I thought that could be a cool idea!

I had an Africanized cover of Katy Perry's ROAR that I recorded months ago, but couldn't figure out what to do with it

Well something just clicked!

I called up Tauni who was over snapconference and asked if she could help me round up as many of the bloggers as possible to come to the recording studio to add vocals on the song I did.

When I told them the song I wanted them to do with me, i'm not sure it was the top choice for many of the mums, until I gave a short explanation as to why i felt this was a perfect fit for blogging mums

I told them that women reminded me of swans. I told them to picture the way a swan floats effortlessly and gracefully. Perfectly poised on a crystal clear pond, where hardly a ripple can be seen.

But what we don't see underneath the water are tiny little feet flapping at turbo speed like twin turbine engines!

This song is not about what goes on above the water, but what goes on below.

THANKS FOR WATCHING!!
