Clarissa has been singing since the tender age of 2. Her mother shares the story of when a next door neighbor overheard Clarissa the toddler singing the national anthem from start to finish. She currently writes songs from her life experiences. This comes naturally and performing her songs is her most fulfilling self-expression. Writing simple songs about complex things such as love, family, and life in general; issues that most people relate to in a form of a pop, dance, rock tune or a ballad is her own way of channeling her dynamic energy constructively.

Of her single and video release, “One Love”, Clarissa has this to say: “I use my experiences and living vicariously; channeling energies of the yin or the yang as catalysts for writing themes of love, or about love in universal terms. In a state of chaos out comes beautiful things and creations, delving into my own private writing oasis. I always thought of myself as a hopeless yet reserved romantic, looking through rose-colored lens, rather idealistically, so the song ‘One Love’ came to me almost organically, by way of thought and fits perfectly with the musical beat that went with it. ‘One Love’ has a sort of unique sound I’m fond of, and it has a happy vibe that I enjoy sharing with everyone.”

To be completely honest, I had never heard of Clarissa until her track, “One Love”. The song follows pretty much the glossy standard for this genre, with its flawless combination of Clarissa’s sultry and smooth vocal flair, combined with pretty masterful songwriting. Even more important than the music itself, is the positive, uplifting feeling that “One Love” brings to the table. It is almost staggering how much joy both the song and the video will give you. I mean that very seriously.

I will say it right now. I am not a very big dance music fan, and don’t care much for cheesy Europop. But I can honestly say this is a really cool song. It’s upbeat dance music without any serious pretentions; putting me in a good mood and making me want to get onto the dance floor. Nothing too deep, just fun music. What more can you ask from a dance song?

With “One Love”, Clarissa delivers the perfect dance formula, all wrapped up in a sweet and sexy package to match. For the ears and the eyes, this is almost irresistible!
