My favorite piece this month: Youth EB pick from Jocelyn Rivera

February 22, 2012 in GPRX Blog by jocelyn alexandra rivera

My favorite piece for this month would have to be ”Second Mom” by Sara Martinez of Radio Rookies.  Sara lives with her younger siblings, and one of them is autistic.  This means that he is not just like other kids and things are harder for him to understand.  Since Sara’s parents work a lot she becomes somewhat of Diego’s (her little brother) “second mom.”  I really liked how the title of the piece played into the story perfectly. I loved how much emotion she was willing to show to the listener; that takes a lot of courage. I also really like the piece because of how much I could relate to it. Overall I really liked the piece and I hope that Sara’s singing career gets somewhere.  Her voice is great.
