My Sunday Song – “Don’t Give Up” by Ryan Star

My Sunday Song #72 is “Don’t Give Up” by Ryan Star.  Tomorrow is January 1st, New Year’s Day.  I thought it would be nice to end the year with this song as I think it is appropriate as 2017 saw a year where so many musicians took their own life and suicide prevention became top of mind.  Even a song was released with the suicide prevention hotline number as the title of the song (“1-800-273-8255” by Logic).

“Don’t Give Up” is a piano ballad and Ryan sounds amazing on it.  It is a moving and an inspirational song written by Ryan Star which is telling you to do just that…don’t give up!. There are people out there that love you no matter what happens in your life.  If 2017 was a bad year for you, think of the possibilities that 2018 might hold.  Get back on your feet and fight another day.

Ryan Star is one of my favorite singer/songwriters to come along in many years and I wish he got more press and radio time as he deserves it.  It is songs like this on why I love his music so much.  Give the song a listen and I hope it inspires you in some way!

God Bless!! And Happy New Year!!
