Though she's better known as one half of pop duo Head Over Heart, Belinda Esquer is going to release her solo debut later this year. "Look Inside," the song we're premiering today, is a heartfelt, steely tribute to her mother.
"She is my hero but when she and my father separated for a second time, I got to see a side of her that was so raw and completely undone, that it shattered the pristine image I had of her," Esquer explains of the tune. "I used to think she was steel and invincible; someone who had withstood serious heartache and suffering in the past and managed to stay strong for her daughters through the toughest of times, but the years have chipped away her armor little by little to expose her fragility.
"For me it is difficult to see this side of her because I have modeled by life and my values based on the image I had created of her — to see how vulnerable she is now, is a reflection i have a hard time facing."
Belinda Esquer's The Truth is available October 28.
