The last collaboration on the album Song of Women featuring Lzzy Hale (Halestorm) came out in May, a month filled with events honouring women in the US. “I’m so thankful to THE HU for welcoming me, my words and my melody into this song,” says Hale. “I can count on less than one hand the number of times where a project has changed the course of my spirit and renewed my faith in humanity. This was one of those projects.”
