"Believe" has now been officially sewn into the fabric of our club as the anthem for RSL. Embraced by RSL fans, players, coaches, and staff, it's had such an incredible reaction not only within Utah state and the RSL Family but worldwide. The support and positive feedback received has been unreal and unexpected. When I first wrote/recorded "Believe" I never could've imagined so many people getting behind this little idea I had and a vision of what it could be. To my surprise its far exceeded anything I thought possible and I want to thank all of you who support it, continue to watch it, sing along with us at matches and will help this anthem to carry on for years and generations to come! Thank you sincerely.
I recently teamed up once again with the talented Isaac Halasima to combine our efforts in a new rendition of "Believe". Not straying from the anthems melody, words and intent. Nor trying to replace the original video. But simply to close out this season and enter into the Playoffs with a bit of a darker, more haunting rendition I came up with. Once again, Isaac did a brilliant job of taking my vision and making it into a reality with his video work. I like to think both videos have an underlying metaphor that parallels with what has been achieved... that something can start as simple as one person using their voice and standing their ground, with some initiative can build into something far bigger than any one of us and can truly make a difference. I hope this can inspire others throughout the RSL Family and the entire MLS to step up and use your voice, ideas to help continue to create an atmosphere we can all take pride in as we pay tribute and honor each of our respected clubs throughout this still young league. We as fans can make a huge difference and we don't need to wait for others to do it for us. Thanks to all the fans and supporters of all clubs in the MLS for helping make this league special and something we can all be so passionate about.
Special thanks to the FO and everyone at Real Salt Lake for once again allowing Isaac and I to come into the stadium very late at night with our small crew and film this piece. Without their help & support none of this would be possible.
