Greek-French vocal pop sensation George Perris has released his new single “She Walks On,” a powerful and captivating track about Maya, a 9-year-old Syrian refugee he met at a camp in Greece. CLICK HERE to listen. Check out the first listen on Parade Magazine. A beacon of strength, Maya was left alone at the camp after her father died during the war and both her mother and brother drowned on their way to Greece. When Maya asked George to sing for her, George sang a French lullaby that his mother sang to him as a baby. She hugged him, leaving George in awe of her hope. George promised he would write this song for her but when he returned, she was gone.
The new single, co-written by Perris, Mikal Blue and Adam Crossley, is a track off his upcoming international album, Who I’m Meant To Be, his second English-language album and first as a co-writer, due out Friday, May 31st via Destin Productions.
