Hilary Roberts talks about her new Christmas song 'Back to Life', says she plans to feed the homeless during the holidays
The 'There For You' singer recently dropped her latest single ‘Back to Life’ with a video scheduled to come out on Friday following Thanksgiving
Besides the recognition she gained for her single ‘There For You’ from 2018 which was her first top ten single on the Billboards Dance Club Songs chart, American singer Hilary Roberts is also known for her numerous charitable acts.
MEA WorldWide (MEAWW) caught up with her at the 2019 American Music Awards which took place last Sunday, November 24. Roberts spoke extensively about her new Christmas song and how she plans to not be alone during the holiday.
The singer offers a new release every Christmas and this year, too, she is dropped her latest single ‘Back to Life’ with a video scheduled to come out on Friday following Thanksgiving.
Talking about what inspired her to create this piece of music, she said that a promoter that she knows in the UK requested her to record a Christmas song and that’s how the track was born.
Roberts credited her Grammy-award winning producer Damon Sharpe for laying the groundwork for the track. “Eric Sanicola came up with this great idea and I tweaked a little bit. It's a great song,” she added.
Emphasizing the importance of having someone by your side during Christmas, ‘Back to Life’ singer said that nobody is alone as long as they have beautiful music to listen, which is exactly the purpose her songs serve.
This Christmas, she said she'll be joining LA-based charity Midnight Mission to feed the homeless. “Humans want connection”, Roberts says, “When people are suffering and it's a lonely time or a hard time, it's important that we reach out to them and we use the gifts that we've been given to be of help to them.”
Briefly touching upon the genre of music she would like to pursue in the future, Roberts told MEAWW she would like to create some country music. "It has a story and it paints this great picture. And there's a lot of heart and soul put into country”.
Roberts also expressed her interest in collaborating with Martina McBride, Dolly Parton, and her fellow redhead Reba McEntire.
