Carmen Miller ‘wants it all’ for Red Cross projectWritten by Sanya Ali | | firstname.lastname@example.org
Carmen Miller has been signed with TMG and she is going at the music world with guns blazing.
“It’s been a whirlwind of a year,” Miller said.
Not so much of a whirlwind that Miller forgot about one of her favorite summer projects. Miller’s song, “I Want it All,” is one of the 21 featured on this year’s “Red, White & You, Too!” CD, benefiting the American Red Cross of Northwest Ohio.
“I love the cause,” Miller said. “Red Cross has always been doing such great work in the community. I was involved last year and it is always such a fun thing to do. The ‘Red, White & You’ CD is one of the highlights of the year for me.”
Her track for this project stems from her love of ’80s music, with a few personal twists.
“This was my ode to ’80s hair metal with a touch of 30 Seconds to Mars to boot,” Miller said. “This is one of my favorite songs. It’s fun, summer music.”
The song, Miller said, encourages listeners to experience each moment of life as fully as possible.
“It’s actually about not limiting yourself to what people think and being committed to having the best of life that life has to offer,” Miller said. “With me, everything that I sing has a bit of a Christian bend so I just wanna make sure it comes across that the Bible says in Christ you can do all things so I want it all.”
Besides getting signed, the last year has seen Miller collaborating with two groups, Aaftermath and Vertigo.
“Aaftermath is one of my favorite things to do right now because it’s so outside of the box from what people think,” Miller said. “A lot of people look at me and they see gospel, as far as when you hear Christian artists and whatever, but I am a big metal girl. I’m a big ol’ rock star.”
Miller hopes the Red Cross CD sells out this year.
“Everything happens for a reason if you go through adversity or something like that,” Miller said. “The last 10 years have been kind of difficult but, you know what? I’m here, I’m standing and I want it all!”
