As a supporter of the talented artists we have in our beautiful country, I congratulate the indie film Becoming Redwood on their opening night and for making an inspiring film about a boy who has the courage to believe in his dreams all in the name of love. Go Redwood, I’m proud to have a song on your soundtrack!
