Gabrielle De Rosa – “I have a message for your eyes only: this song is for you”

All is one, but as the singer-songwriter says: “This specific message will be different for each and everyone of you out there. My purpose is to make you feel special and essential in your own unique way”. If you want to know more about it, watch the video and read until the very end. There is a message just for you.
