The song is deeply personal, but conveys a highly relatable message. It describes the realisation that though loss is painful, you can cope with it and you will inevitably become stronger through the experience. “I was having a conversation about my father passing away, but didn’t want to come to terms with how I felt openly.

Ava started out her musical journey as a member of a gospel choir at a London secondary school where she honed her talent as a singer. Her influences growing up wereNina Simone and Whitney Houston. These influences can be heard in Ava’s recent work alongside her own unique touch of soulful, bubbly and expressive personality.
Ava’s life was completely turned upside down with the death of her father, her biggest cheerleader. But it was then that she found comfort in music and it helped her through those difficult times. In late 2014, Ava was scouted on StarNow, and later she was introduced to writer/producer Darren Martyn. The chemistry between the two was immediate and this resulted in her first single “Okay”. Since then, she has performed all around the UK, including London renowned show ILUVLIVE and one of the City’s finest venues, the Bedford. She has covered some of the most famous pop hits, such as “Skyfall” by Adele and “If I Ain’t Got You” by Alicia Keys, adding her unique touch to them, which resulted in an astounding performance. This gained her immense popularity on YouTube.
