Student Spotlight✨ MI Independent Artist student Shal Antal has been featured on the "Fresh Indie Fridays" list in : https://bit.ly/3vqo9bL

Shal says of her new single Rubik's Cube:
"There was a Rubik's Cube sitting on top of my shelf...Looking at it, it took me back to my schooling years. It was something I'd seen many kids in class trying to master [and] I felt rather misunderstood during those years. This song helped me work out those feelings of having to be an overachiever or a perfectionist."
