This weekend, I had the absolute honor of watching one of my dear friends put on a performance that rendered the audience (all three days) speechless. It's one kind of bravery to get through heartbreak, and another entirely to put it out there for the world so beautifully. I am more than proud of her, and I know she is going places in the very near future. She has a gift, and it doesn't take a genius to see it.
As soon as I rewatched this video of Chiara performing "Burn" from Hamilton, I knew I wanted to make it my article this week. This was the best she had done out of all three shows, and it is too amazing not to be shared. The emotion in every word is so apparent, which makes the song that much better in my opinion. I cannot begin to express the love I have for this girl and the way she inspires me every day. Thank you for sharing experience with all of us, Chiara.
