The video’s description reads, “Its message is that we are strong and capable, and we are Titanium. This song has become a motto for me in my everyday life, and I feel empowered every single time I sing it. I've had to overcome a lot to get to where I am today, but I'm so grateful for the experiences I've been able to have and most importantly for all of YOU. Never forget, you can do hard things!”
