Q: ‘One More Time’ is so beautiful! What is the story behind the song?
Amira: Thank you so much! It is a very special song to me as I auditioned to Berklee College of Music with it. The song is about two people who are in a long distance relationship and need patience in order to stay together. I actually wrote it in 2016 and it was so different, then in 2022 I decided to change it completely by adding harmonies and a string section. The new version was written at Berklee and has a group of talented musicians playing the instrumental.

Q: What are you most looking forward to in terms of your musical career?
