I’m happy to present you my new single and music video. This is called Broken To Complete. It’s an exciting song since I’m also singing in it and in guest vocals we have the amazing Nadin Zaqarian.
Let me tell you about story of the song.
During my life I’ve had lots of personal troubles and issues for my whole adult life. Different kinds of physical and mental troubles have hauntining me and at some point I felt there’s no other way out than ending it all. With some hidden inner strenght I managed to turn things slowly to better.
Afterwards I can see, that with every obstacle taken over I gained more experience and learned a little lesson. The pain I went through made me who I am today and also made me stronger. That’s why I thank the pain in this song.
Broken To Complete is dedicated to all that have gone through a hell and survived. It is also dedicated to those who are now struggling with their issues. Even though it might feel there is no way out I can say from my experience that life has it’s way to sort things out. Just keep strong and don’t give up.
