Clap for Yourself is a song I wrote for all my dreamers and visionaries, the artists and free birds. Performed in one of London’s most colourful locations, the Graffiti Tunnel.
It’s tough being an independent artist, because no one is clapping for you, literally. Not even at the showcases LOL. It can be a long and dry journey, with loads of setbacks and constantly feeling like nothing is moving in any direction. So you have to clap for yourself. You have to be your biggest fan, your biggest supporter, your biggest motivation and you have to practice controlling your mindset. To get rid of negative thoughts. To not give any room to doubt and fear. You gotta be brave and bold and sing so loud, so many times that they can’t ignore you any longer.
I hope you enjoy this performance as much as I did performing it.
