I FEEL IT BY KEANU HARKER - LAUNCH EVENTS FOR NEW SINGLE BY SOUTH AFRICAN STAR COMING IN JUNE
I Feel It is the debut single by super-talented Keanu Harker. Well-known for his electric performances on Mnets The Voice SA, Harker now releases his first independent song.
"I Feel It is a very close and personal song to me, and I wrote it during a very crazy time in my life. There were times where I felt that I should just be a cover artist, performing and singing other artists songs because my music was not good enough or I felt I was not ready yet to step out and release the music that I had created” says Harker.
“But, I just could not stop thinking about how right it felt to be doing this. The first line in the song says: Man I cant lie, I can think about nothing else, and that is literally what pushed and Inspired me to write this song. I had to convince myself that I am good enough and I am ready, and that my music will be relatable to those listening.”
Keanu has written and produced several new singles, all earmarked for release later in 2021. The 1st of his singles, I Feel It, releases 3 June, followed by the music video release on 11 June 2021.
“These songs are very special to me. The writing and recording process has been everything I dreamed of” says Keanu. “It has been a long time coming that I have been hesitant about stepping out as a recording artist and this is the perfect song. It is a reminder to me that this feels right. I know it, I believe it, "I FEEL IT”. “
