“What started as a Zoom call with a few buddies for fun during quarantine turned into a song that I absolutely love,” said Rebecca Black, reflecting on the process of creating the song alongside Best Buddies Ambassadors. “Nothing beats seeing the way everyone’s eyes light up when a great, new idea is brought up while writing together. I have been so continuously inspired by the buddies throughout the process of putting this song together…it can be quite daunting to put yourself out there creatively in the ways they have, but they have been fearless. There’s never been a moment where they haven’t been encouraging and open-hearted to each person involved.”
Black’s involvement with Best Buddies began in 2017. Her spirit and generosity at the annual Best Buddies Leadership Conference and social events in Los Angeles has inspired many to support the organization’s mission of inclusion for individuals with special abilities.
“It’s been so special to create something together that connects us while we are all “alone,” what I think we all want this song to be is something that can help bring that hopefulness and encouragement to those who really need that guidance right now, no matter where you are or who you are,” said Black.
