Cristina on new single “T H A N K F U L” inspiration: “I wrote this song when I was in a really really sad and dark place and was so so tired of being sad. I was crying a lot and in need of making a lot of tough shifts and changes I didn’t have energy to make and didn’t want to. After 2 MASSIVE heart breaks including a broken engagement and even girl-friendships were breaking my heart.”
“T H A N K F U L” took 5 years not only to make the song but to completely solidify the interior change I wanted to have, positivity, a positive perspective and lens no matter what I encountered. Finally when I was tired enough of being sad I said, you know what, I am going to write a HAPPY song, and I am going to dream about a future, a husband, playing shows, and I’m going to give thanks for everything I have and everything I’ve suffered and been blessed with.”
“So if you want to hear a song that will make you bop your head that will lift you up a little bit and dream about an amazing future, take a listen! THIS WAS THE BEGINNING OF MY SHIFT AND IT CAN BE YOURS, or an encouragement in the gratefulness you already possess. I was hopeless and wanted freedom and writing this song helped me work to that and through that.” – Cristina Ballestero
