“This song is the only reason I am still alive right now. This was uploaded a couple of days before I flew to visit family as my intentions were to see them all one last time, fly home again and then end it all. My phone notified me that you uploaded a new song so I listened to it and I broke. Made me realize I need to stay a bit longer, not for myself, but for others. Even now, after close to 1000 plays later, still moves me. Music is a healer.”
Jeffrey Blue, another YouTube user, admitted that he was not able to stop tears from falling as soon as he heard Andrea’s heavenly voice singing with his son.
