Claire Crosby Sings “Meant to Be”
“Meant to Be” is a song popularly recorded by American singer Bebe Rexha featuring vocals from American country music duo, Florida Georgia Line. It was released in October 2017 from her album, All Your Fault: Pt. 2. This song was nominated for Best Country Duo/Group Performance at the 61st Annual Grammy Awards.
Upon its release, this song entered the chart and ranked number 61 on the US Billboard Hot 100 hits.
In addition, “Meant to Be” was recorded by a 5-year-old Youtuber Claire Crosby with her dad who plays the guitar. The father and daughter duo have a big impact on the hearts of their viewers, which reached more than 2millions views on the videos they have uploaded.
The father and daughter duo have started when Dave, Claire’s father, have seen what an incredible talent in singing and playing instruments his daughter has. He then came up with an idea of uploading Claire’s video on YouTube and created her own channel “Claire and the Crosby.” Her channel was created in January 2016 and now gathers millions of subscribers.
Story Behind the Song
American artist such as Bleta Rexha, Tyler Hubbard, David Garcia, and Josh Miller had penned this Country song. According to one of the writers of the song, while having a session, one of them had a fight with her boyfriend. She cannot focus on her writing but that did not hinder her. Instead, her manager let her continue to finish the song.
In addition, she has no idea where to get an inspiration to finish the song until she realized to write something she knew is right. Tyler also had a rough day while writing this song and that is why his wife told him:
“If it’s meant to be, it’ll be.”
The moral lesson we got from the song “Meant to Be” is to believe in what we think is right. We must not force something to happen instantly because if it is really meant for you, it will be for you no matter how long it takes.
