Breathin was originally released by Ariana Grande on her 2018 Sweetener. It’s about having anxiety attacks, particularly how it can feel like you are unable to breathe. This is a beautiful rendition from Mikaela with a simple piano accompaniment that complements her voice and gives the song an intimate feel. The video is a simple scene of Mikaela sitting in a chair, with the mic perfectly placed so as to pick up the singing without obscuring Mikaela‘s face, and a string of hanging lights behind; and ends with one of the most delightful smiles you’ll ever see.
WARNING: The lyrics of this song should not be used as advice on how to deal with an anxiety attack: breathing should be slowed down during an attack.
You can follow Mikaela on Facebook, and on her YouTube channel.
