When wars and crisis hit the world, people tend to say that one person cannot do much about anything. I personally think that if you can do something, no matter how small - do it. I wanted to publish and share my song to support the Ukrainians and I hope my song and video give them just a little bit of hope for the better future.
"You're not alone now, everyone is here with you. All united, we'll fight the evil til the end"
