Rising Inspirational Pop singer/songwriter NEDY, spreads a message of self-love and strength with the release of her latest single, “Made to Be.” It is easy to get caught up in society’s standards and consider God-given qualities to be scars, especially when bullied for what makes you special. “Made To Be” serves as a guiding light to prove that all should embrace their unique qualities and not give attention to those who make us feel inferior. Dancing onto the scene as a friend offering a shoulder to lean on, “Made to Be” proves that the world needs positive power, just as much as we desire to discover who we are ‘made to be.’ The “Made To Be” lyric video exclusively premiered on Digital Journal and is available to download and stream on all digital services now.
