“I wrote Fire It Up a few years ago as an anthem of celebration for life and love and this sentiment feels just as prevalent in this season of life. We are reminded more than ever the importance of community and family and I’m honored that this song is part of the Songs of the Season series and the social justice movement with Inspire Change.”
