That Power by will.i.am feat. Justin Bieber
My song That Power is about believing in yourself and to show how confident you are in anything. Never give up on your dreams and know how grateful you are to make people inspire you and accept who you are. You show that you will always have a positive attitude and you work hard in everything you do to make yourself feel stronger every minute of the day. Think about the lucky things you do In your life plus keep your head up high and people will be there for you no matter what. Just keep saying to yourself “And I’m lovin every second, minute, hour, bigger, better, stronger, power”

300 Violin Orchestra by Jorge Quintela

“Hymn of the Military Wife” Long Journey Home by Hans Zimmer
“We do not know how strong we are until being strong is the only choice we have” I would like to personally dedicate this dance to my parents: to my father who has served 21 years in the United States Navy. And to my mother: who has been a constant role model to me, who proudly stands by my father’s side yet stands just as tall and strong when alone. This piece is danced in remembrance of those who have lost their lives while seriving our country, and most importantly to the family and friends who keep the memory of our fallen soldiers alive.
