Title - 'Unbreakable'
Artist - Ali McManus
For those not in the know, Ali McManus, I'll allow Ali to introduce herself.
"My journey has been a series of twists and turns and I mean that literally. Life – and my body itself – have thrown me some serious curves. But music saved my life. One song means three minutes
of no pain, and I can say things with song that I can’t speak in words alone."
"I don’t see myself as a person in a wheelchair. I see myself as a regular person who just happens to sit down all day. I don’t sweat the small stuff, and I believe positivity is the only way."
"I write songs that reflect my life, and I hope to connect with people through my lyrics and inspire with my message. Music has been my greatest healer. Through music, I have become UNBREAKABLE!"
Out now via Desert Dreams, Ali McManus’ debut album Unbreakable, produced by the legendary Jack Douglas, showcases a singer with a powerful voice; and not just a young girl suffering from a rare bone disorder.

3. 'Breaking Free'
5. 'Heart Shattered'
Beginning this delightful 6-track album with the title track, the piano balladry of 'Unbreakable', you know through each word sung, each lyric poured out, that Ali's heartfelt life story is coming forth.
Those most personal of feelings are indeed sewn throughout these new tracks, and come to the fore most noticeably within songs such as both 'Breaking Free,' and the simply stunning 'Home.'
A uniquely talented artist who has overcome more obstacles in her 20 young years than some people do in their entire lives, Ali McManus is, without a shadow of a doubt, one of the most talented songwriters and most beautiful-voiced of singers that I've personally heard in the past decade.
