My new single is out!!!

Hello my butterflies!!

Guess what?? My 2nd single "Embrace it" is now out for y'all!! You can hear it on my MySpace page! The CD single also includes a bonus song called "Butterfly." It's included because that's the song that made me call my fans (YOU!) my butterflies! On Monday, I'll have a YouTube video with the cover art for "Embrace it!" I'm so excited and hope you like it! =D

3 years

Hello my butterflies.

Today is the 3 year anniversary of my grandmother's passing. To this day, I still think of her. I still remember her. I still miss her. I will always love her. In everything I do, I remember her. After all, my last name "Cortes" is a tribute to her. I know she's watching over me and my family and I just hope she's proud of everything I've done and who I've become in these three years without her.

There's a song quote that I retweeted on my Twitter page that applies to this day quite nicely: "...And I know you're shining down on me from heaven" - "One Sweet Day" by Boyz II Men & Mariah Carey. Grandma, I love you and miss you, today and everyday.

Soul Surfer

Hello my butterflies!

Last night, my family and I decided to sit down together and watch a movie. We chose to watch "Soul Surfer". I had wanted to see it in theaters, since it looked really good and had one of my favorite actresses (AnnaSophia Robb) and one of my favorite singers (Carrie Underwood) in it.

After seeing it, I can say that it was the most inspirational and emotional movie I've ever seen. It was amazing to see Bethany Hamilton's story and see how she made it through everything. She never gave up, even after it seemed like she couldn't go on. Bethany Hamilton is an absolute inspiration and I think that if you haven't seen this movie yet, you definitely should.
