Based in Hartlepool, the 22 year old Michael Rice has been developing his sound over the year after his participation with world’s biggest songwriting show Eurovision 2019. His song ‘Bigger Than Us’ went on to hit the charts in Sweden, Denmark as well as landing him his first UK Top 10 single.
‘Breaking free’, which will be released on July 17, is a heartfelt, motivational, uplifting classical pop track, with a twist of gospel. Get ready for an emotional trip into your soul. Don’t hold back, you’re allowed to cry this time.
It’s a song about breaking away from the mould that society expects you to be. Sometimes it can be you against the world, but you gotta fight for what you believe in and you stand for, even if that means stepping into the unknown. Being that change, regardless of what people may say or think or even judge you for it. It’s all good to be scared, what you feel in your heart is the only truth.
‘Breaking free’ is written by Michael Rice (UK), Roel Rats (NL), Tjeerd Van Zanen (NL) and Marcia Sondeijker (NL) and is produced by Roulsen (NL).
