Tate McRae hits the big time

Tate McRae is a 14-year-old dancer, singer and actress from Calgary, Canada. She hopes to be on Broadway one day, and dance or sing professionally. Tate has her own youtube channel with 376,981 followers. About four months ago Tate started posting videos singing songs that she had wrote herself.

Tate produced and released her first single, One Day to Itunes on December 24, 2017.  Her song is about a girl who is crushing on a boy that she doubts will ever be hers. In the song, my favorite lyrics are “I think about 100 thoughts and you are 99.”

The song has a catchy beat that would make anybody want to listen to it over and over again. A few of her singles happen to tell a story about a relationship. I’ve been listening to Tates music before it even came out on Itunes, and you can really tell how she has a passion for it.
