World Premiere: Maysa delivers the stunning love song "You Are Not Alone"

(November 15, 2018) She's one of the most awarded artists in the history of the SoulTracks Readers' Choice Awards. And for a quarter century she has established an incredible career, both as a member of Incognito and as a solo artist. Of course, we're talking about singer supreme, Maysa. And now Maysa can add record label founder to her resume, as she establishes her new Blue Velvet imprint. 

The first single for her new label is a typically beautiful Maysa ballad. "You Are Not Alone" opens with a simple piano and the incomparable voice of Ms. Leak, and expands into a story about encouragement, letting someone know that they can face the world a little more confidently because of the unfailing love of one person who will always be there.

Maysa tells us “I was inspired to write 'You Are Not Alone' because of my experience with the premature birth of my son, Jazz, and the help I received from the March of Dimes. I remember how difficult it was to give birth to a preemie, especially in a foreign country, and how alone one feels in that situation. The lyrics and melody came to me in minutes once the floodgates of emotions from that experience came rushing over me.  As I was writing the song, it connected to so many other situations in life where the feeling of solitude can be overwhelming. We all have those experiences, and it helps to know there are others who care and are there for us. The March of Dimes was that for me with my son, and I’ve spent my life trying to be that for others. We all just need to know there is someone to help us through the tough times in our journey.”

The song is a moving message of love from a parent to a child, and Maysa's stunning performance makes it just perfect.

"You Are Not Alone" comes out this Friday, but we're proud to present the World Premiere of it today. Check out "You Are Not Alone" below and joining us in celebrating this next step in the career of Maysa!
