May has been a very busy, yet amazing month, for Vicci Martinez. May 1st was just the start, with the release of Vicci’s 4 song EP. Later that same day she performed her new single “Come Along” Featuring CeeLo Green on the Live Semi-final Eliminations for Season 2 of ‘The Voice.’ Check out her live performance with CeeLo right here.
Vicci chose “Come Along” for her first single because she loved the message of the song. In a review on www.Arjanwrites.com Vicci states:
“I think the lyrics are really important for people today, for all of us but especially for our generation,” she adds. “We can break the cycle and habits that our society has been stuck in. It is a time of evolution, evolving into our divine, most perfect self. I feel this is a step that I’ve been trying to take and by singing this song, I’m asking everyone else to come along with me and take a stand.”
Along with Vicci’s single, the EP consisted of another 3 amazing songs. “Run Run Run” is an up tempo pop song with lyrics such as “I’m just trying to find my place. Am I right or wrong.. Where do I belong…..Why do I run?” Then there is the up beat dance anthem “I Can Love.” This song has Vicci’s message written all over it with lyrics like “Who I am is what you see. And yes its love that sets me free.” As well as the amazing chorus “But maybe I can stop and change this world. Maybe I can be that super girl. Maybe I can do more than you think. I know I can because I have a heart that beats and iiiiii can love.” Then there’s the super ballad “Hold Me Darlin.” Vicci had already written this song as it was on her “Live From Jazzbones” CD, but she changed the tempo and added a few verses to the song.
