MP3: Wellington Bullings – Because I Want To
In this age of self-isolation and social distancing, many creatives have turned to what they do best: creating. Soul singer/songwriter, model, and actor Wellington Bullings expresses her will to do what brings her the most joy in these uncertain times with her debut single "Because I Want To".
“Because I Want To is a song about creating the life you desire to live. It’s about the art of trusting that which calls your heart. This song is my declaration to do just that, and hopefully that will inspire others to do the same. The vibe of this song is meant to be empowering, yet undeniably playful.” -Wellington Bullings
Featuring musicians Tim Wendel on guitar, Patrick McDevitt on bass, John Stenger on piano, and Dru Heller on percussion, "Because I Want To" is the title track and lead single from Wellington's forthcoming debut album, due out June 4.
