With a Speak Now era Taylor Swift sound with the honest lyrics of Cam, this song is one sure to connect with all young people. The chorus plays on the quote:
"Sing like no one is listening.
Love like you’ve never been hurt.
Dance like nobody’s watching,
and live like it’s heaven on earth."
Hoopes adds her own spin to that classic saying. Her voice is distinct yet not overly different, which could end up working in her favor in the long run. Despite the fact that she did not write this track, vocally it sounds like she relates to the song more than she did to her debut. There is more emotion, and it sounds like she completely understands the songs topic, because she is living it. From her vocal performance, it is clear that this song is more Kristi Hoopes, and should be the direction she goes in as she hones her unique sound and continues her music career.
