The lead single, "Voiceless", offers a soft, mid-tempo "prayer" for the voiceless - a tribute to those who's yearning and will to overcome obstacles Elena knows so well. "The song is about the homeless and others who society has dehumanized and not allowed to be considered equal," Elena says. Her voice is smooth, almost haunting, as she makes a heartfelt appeal for the "Voiceless."

"Rescue Me" is an up-tempo tune that's just right for urban dance clubs. Elena sings, "You lit the fire inside of me and only your love can rescue me." With its funk-filled track that celebrates young love, look for this song to chart big. "Obsessed" is another love call from Elena to the man of her dreams. As she puts it, "I'm singing the age-old problem of girls loving bad boys!" Throughout the CD, you'll find a manageable mix of tunes that cover today's contemporary issues - she's hip, fresh pop with heart for the 21st Century!

Music has been the calming wave that helped ease the pain of past tragedies for Elena, and now she hopes her music can do the same for others. Elena is also fierce champion of victim rights, and an active role model for young victims of abuse. She is a shinning example of how you not only overcome such heinous crimes, you can thrive. If she can overcome this, anyone can.
