Kelsie Kimberlin is a proud Ukrainian-American singer and she has become one of our favorite artists, with her strong vocal abilities and songs about issues that have an impact on the world.
This time she’s back showing her support to Ukraine , with a cover of her favorite song “Rooting For My Baby” by one of her favorite artists, Miley Cyrus
The track starts with a swift melody along Kelsie’s strong emotional vocals, but while Miley’s original, the lyrics focused on supporting her loved one during times of stress, Kelsie has a different take with her “baby” being the country of Ukraine during this time of war, filled with darkness, sadness, and suffering.
“The song is kind of a metaphor of me rooting every day for my beloved Ukraine to ‘wake in the morning,’ “‘hold on,’ ‘it’s a long road,’ ‘in a moment it’ll be over and gone,’ and catch the dream of peace “everlasting.’” So everyone should sing along with that in mind. The chorus is especially apropos,” said Kelsie. I know, I know That you go through a lot I know, I know That the pressure makes you hot I know, I know 'Cause you still know what you got I know, I know, yeah I'm rootin' for my baby The idea for the cover came recently after an especially violent barrage of enemy missiles on Ukraine that left millions without electricity or water. “I was in America watching these awful attacks while seeing the amazing courage and resolve of Ukrainian citizens to persevere despite the unbearable stress and hardships. So I caught myself singing Miley’s tune and decided right then to record it and make a quick video at home. My production team and I laid down the audio tracks in a couple of studio sessions and then my video director filmed me singing the song in less than an hour,” added Kelsie. Kelsie is a beacon of hope and uses her music to give listeners something on which to connect. She is a worldwide inspiration with her incredible work ethic and dedication to her music. And here she uses a great song by a great artist as an example in activism. Join Kelsie and the citizens of Ukraine for the official release of this new single and video knowing that everyone will be “rooting” for Ukraine to hold on, in a minute the war will be over and gone.
