In The Spotlight

Wé McDonald – “Head Up High”

Hailing from Paterson, this young American songstress and author had a rough time in school, due to a high-pitched voice and thick-rimmed glasses. Proving the bullies wrong, she went on to be a contestant on Season 11 of The Voice, in which she ultimately came third. She tells her story in a children’s book “The Little Girl With The Big Voice”, teaching kids to embrace their unique qualities.

That anti-bullying message is also woven through the lyrical fabric of her new empowering single. A buoyant bass line, captivating rhythm and punchy electric guitar chords musically represent the roughness of life, while her emotional, commanding vocals with a bit of a bite depict the strength to hold your head up high and not to be a victim, making it an impressive and slightly dark gem.
