“It is such an honor to be able to celebrate ’Hold On To Me’,” shares Daigle. This song is so special and a reminder to hold each other close especially through times of difficulty. I am so eternally grateful for the connection that people have made with this music and the continued support from radio for allowing it to have the space to grow.”
