FM91 and Maria Unera touch our hearts with a song for those battling cancer
All forms of art are a medium one can use to express themselves. And one such medium which is widely used and can connect with our souls instantly is music. Now, we are used to listening to love songs and dance numbers, but it was Maria Unera's Strong that managed to touch our souls and leave tears in our eyes.
The track has been brought to us by FM91, the radio station that is known for discovering and promoting local artists. Unera is one of those artists and her beautiful voice and heartbreaking song has a story to tell.
The song Strong, is an ode to the singer's late mother Veronica Unera, who tragically succumbed to cancer in 2016. The track not only bares Maria Unera's soul, but also stands as an inspiration to those battling cancer, as well as those who have lost their loved ones to the disease.
At the beginning of the song, Maria states, "The song is a tribute to all those people who go through cancer, but also people who have to go through it with the ones suffering from the disease."
For anyone who has had family members fighting the disease, are well aware of how tough it is to see a loved one in pain, and how the memories of the experience can haunt one forever.
Maria ended the heart wrenching track with the message, "I wrote the song a year ago to let my mom know that she is not alone. That God is with her, and that I am with her. It’s just a prayer to God to keep her strong."
Give the song a listen and we are sure Strong will touch your souls too.
