I Am Enough is slated to release early 2019.
“Forgiveness is a powerful thing,” Willis told Direct Lyrics. “It has been one of the themes of my life for a long time. I think we all struggle with guilt and shame on so many levels. I have certainly felt guilty for things I have done and said in the past, and I have felt hurt by others for things they may or may not have even intended to cause me pain. The more I lean into forgiveness and vulnerability, the more those dark places are filled with love and light. We all have to try harder to truly love and understand one another. I wrote ‘Forgiveness’ as a pledge to do just that.”
Willis stepped into the limelight through a viral video she posted on Facebook for fun last year. Soon after, she released the official music video for “Somebody’s Someone,” leading her down the fulfilling path of becoming an advocate for mental health awareness.
