Fire of Freedom by Matisyahu

This week’s Song of the Week is recommended by MIA staff Carina Ruggiero: “To me, this powerful song is about connecting with the fire inside that fuels us through extremely difficult times. I used to sing this song at the top of my lungs during the withdrawal process. It reminded me of the unshakeable strength within as I fought for freedom. And now freedom is here!”
