Biography

Continuing to provide listeners with positive, fun, and current music is important to Alani Claire, an artist and vocalist who is dedicated to promoting her motto of “you’re worth it” to youth around the world.

With her unusually compassionate heart, Alani Claire’s greatest joy comes from uplifting those around her, and she hopes to inspire others to reach for their goals and dreams through the power of her music and lyrics.

Alani Claire’s background and talents are just as colorful as her name. At the young age of 14, the vocal sound of this powerhouse pop/soul singer with a Hawaiian heritage and Alaskan roots has stunned not only fans but also those in the music industry. In the words of music producer Jeff McCullough, “If you blend the vocal maturity and tone of India-Arie with the range and power of Mariah Carey, it would only begin to describe the vocal styling of Alani Claire.” True to her passionate Hawaiian essence, once she got a taste of performing on stage, her love of music and its power to inspire and uplift others was solidified and she has not turned back.

Early in 2011, the opportunity opened up for Alani to return to her mother’s hometown in California and work with music producer Jeff McCullough of Tree Hill Media. Although new to the recording studio, Alani Claire embraced the challenge of learning her style and fleshing out her abilities as an artist.

Alani’s hard work and dedication paid off as she released her first album “Change This World” late in 2011. The album includes 5 original songs and 2 cover songs, all which include upbeat, positive messages that youth of all ages can relate to.

Alani Claire is currently touring the US in coffee houses, state fairs, private venues, and public schools.

Lyrics

Here I Go

Written By: Jeff McCullough, Alani Claire, Kinau Reynolds, Nicole Reynolds

I can't believe I'm standing here
I'm on the edge of something new
Am I good enough
will I succeed
or will this be the end?

Here I Go (x4)

I can't believe I made it here
I'm so excited right now
I'm on my way
I'm almost there
I'm one step closer to my dream

Here I go (x4)

all my life i've tried so hard
don't try to stop me
i'm still scared I can't let it show

Here I go (x4)

I can't believe I'm standing here

Call Me Your Girl

Written By: Jeff McCullough, Morgan Leigh, Rob Carona


i don't know what i was thinkin'

but here you come i must be dreamin'

i could draw a line

straight from your eyes to mine

all i see

is the day i'm dreamin' of when

you call me your girl

i'll be the only one

a kiss on the cheek

when you hold on to me

oh so sweet

when you call me your girl

i'll be the one you love

you look right at me

i'm a song that you sing

a beautiful melody

when you call me your girl

oh oh whah oh whah oh oh oh

i get lost in your blue eyes

just take some time

you've got to realize oh

your blues turn me red

i'm goin' out my head

i don't know why

i could be the one

ooo ooo when you call me your girl

i'll be the only one

a kiss on the cheek

when you hold on to me

oh so sweet

when you call me your girl

i'll be the one you love

you look right at me

i'm the song that you sing

a beautiful melody

when you call me your girl

oh oo whah oh oo whah oh oh

wake up from your dream

your the perfect boy for me

it sounds so sweet

perfect for eachother

you and me should be together

when you call me your girl

i'll be the only one

a kiss on the cheek

when you hold on to me

i'll be the one you love

you look right at me

i'm the song that you sing

a beautiful melody

when you call me your girl

oh oo whah oh oo whah oh oh

when you call me your girl

oh oo whah oh oo whah oh oh

Beautiful Flower

Written By: Joyce Simpson & India Arie

this is a song for every girl who's
ever been through something she thought she couldn't make it through
i sing these words because
i was that girl too
wanting something better than this
but who do I turn to

now we're moving from the darkness into the light
this is the defining moment of our lives

cause you're beautiful like a flower
more valuable than a diamond
you are powerful like a fire
you can heal the world with your mind

there is nothing in the world that you cannot do
when you believe in you, who are beautiful
yeah, you, who are brilliant
yeah, you, who are powerful
yeah, you, who are resilient

this is a song for every girl who
feels like she is not special
cause she don't look like a supermodel Coke bottle
the next time the radio tells you to shake your moneymaker
shake your head and tell them, tell them you're a leader

now we're moving from the darkness into the light
this is the defining moment of our lives

cause you're beautiful like a flower
more valuable than a diamond
you are powerful like a fire
you can heal the world with your mind

there is nothing in the world that you cannot do
when you believe in you, who are beautiful
yeah, you, who are brilliant
yeah, you, who are powerful
yeah, you, who are resilient

yeah, you, who are beautiful
yeah, you, who are brilliant
yeah, you, who are powerful
yeah, you, who are resilient

yeah, you, this song is for you
yeah, you, this song is for you
yeah, you, this song is for you
yeah, you, yeah, you
you are brilliant

Writers Strike

Written By: Abigail Tanner

i've written lots of songs
for the boys who made me cry
none of my songs are happy
so i'm going on a writers strike

never again will i write another melody
never again will i write another rhyme
never again
i'm going on a writers strike
until i fall in love

so if i never find love
then my music will just die
because i am determined
that i'm really goin' on strike

never again will i write another melody
never again will i write another rhyme
never again
i'm going on a writers strike
until i fall in love

(bridge)

if i never find love
then my music will just die
because i am determined
that i'm really goin' on strike

never again will i write another melody
never again will i write another rhyme
never again
until i fall in love

so if i never find love
then my music will just die

My Wish

Written By: Jeffrey Steele & Steve Robson

i hope the days come easy and the moments pass slow,
and each road leads you where you want to go,
and if you're faced with a choice, and you have to choose,
i hope you choose the one that means the most to you.
and if one door opens to another door closed,
i hope you keep on walkin' till you find the window,
if it's cold outside, show the world the warmth of your smile,

but more than anything, more than anything,
my wish, for you, is that this life becomes all that you want it to,
your dreams stay big, and your worries stay small,
you never need to carry more than you can hold,
and while you're out there getting where you're getting to,
i hope you know somebody loves you, and wants the same things too,
yeah, this, is my wish.

i hope you never look back, but ya never forget,
all the ones who love you, in the place you left,
i hope you always forgive, and you never regret,
and you help somebody every chance you get,
oh, you find God's grace, in every mistake,
and you always give more than you take.

but more than anything, yeah, and more than anything,
my wish, for you, is that this life becomes all that you want it to,
your dreams stay big, and your worries stay small,
you never need to carry more than you can hold,
and while you're out there getting where you're getting to,
i hope you know somebody loves you, and wants the same things too,
yeah, this, is my wish.
