Long story short (which has always been a bit of a challenge for me) ;) , the opportunity to create this video snuck up on me in the best of ways and from start to finish, it truly was created on the FLY. Pun intended. :) I didn’t have the time or resources to do much more than just stand there and sing.
When I first listened to this song’s lyrics, I immediately envisioned the little angel and little devil versions of ourselves sitting on either of our shoulders, whispering in our ears, bickering back and forth while our real-life human selves are stuck in the middle torn between the two.
So, I chose to still just stand there and sing, but added more of me… the “little devil me” constantly questioning my capabilities, the naysayers, turbulent social media, life’s heartaches, family tragedies… all of the things that we all have to deal with in some way or other every single day.
But through the recurring cynicism and sadness, we all still have the power to prevail and overcome life’s hardships. We just have to believe. ~FLY~
Jessica Heim is a Middle TN native turned world adventurer and ever inquisitive learner. After her early career in the Nashville music publishing industry, which led to session singing, live performances with country music singers and songwriters and professional musical and play productions, Jessica moved to New York City, where she chose the nomadic life on land and sea by way of international live entertainment on cruise ships as a featured vocalist and singing and dancing on national tour with Sesame Street Live!
While in the Big Apple, she devoted time to her second passion, children, as a music and movement teaching artist and also joined a musical improv team, showcasing her comedic improvisational skills through creating live, on-the-spot musicals. Having returned to TN at least temporarily, Jessica found her way into the on-screen realm and can be seen in tv pilots, movies, commercials, music videos, and most recently, co-hosting online interviews with guests from all walks of life all over the world.
