I first became aware of Sonasfly when she won the award for Fan Favorite at the recent RightOutTV awards, as well as being nominated for Best DIY Video for her song "Carousel". I thought her voice was beautiful, and her music intriguing. And just last week, Sonasfly tweeted me with a link to a new music video, and I couldn't wait to watch it. "Make It Through" is a moving and beautiful story not just of survival, but truly blooming. As we all know, LGBT Youth account for 40% of the homeless teen population, much due to terrible conditions at home. And much like the "It Gets Better" campaign, the Portuguese singer/songwriter reminds the youth that while things might not look bright now, there is much joy to come, if they can just "Make It Through".
While meandering through her various websites, I found an intriguing song named "Spit It", or at least an acoustic version of it that really spoke to me. There is a wonderful edge to the song, with Sonasfly delivering a wonderfully strong vocal.
