I don’t care what musical genre tickles your fancy, when the speakers vibrate to the tune “Make Me Love You” by Dani Elliott there is no doubt this catchy, energy-oozing single will lift your spirits to no end. Whether it is the beat, the relatable message conveyed through the lyrics, or the well-written song pumping through powerful vocals, this song is unforgettable- literally, I can’t get it out of my head! It captures the essence of a true R&B/pop jam performed by a truly talented artist.
Dani’s heart seems to be just as big as her voice, as 50 percent of the proceeds, when purchased through reverbNation, will go towards Charity: Water, a non-profit organization “bringing clean, safe drinking water to people in developing countries.” All donations made to Charity: Water go directly to fund water projects which have resulted in a whopping 3.3 million people receiving clean water to date. Dani explains the importance of doing her part, “I’ve always felt that if you have a platform to ‘speak’ to a large number of people, why not use it to bring attention to issues you feel need it.”
Dani attributes her inspiration for her music to the tunes she listened to growing up coupled with the artists she enjoys today. The combination has created quite the sound as she describes her style, “like if Stevie Wonder and Sia started a band,” as she laughs she continues, “I guess my style, simply put, is R&B/pop inspired.”
