When I first listened to this song during the Children’s day, I was hooked to the song. Later when I went home I really searched for this tape to play it over and over again in my Sony Walkman. You will hear a lot of songs from “NSync”, “Boyzone”, 98 Degrees”, “Boys to Men”.

The singer only manage to produce only 1 song that put them up to stardom, and later part when they are exhaustive of ideas to write another hit song they remained forgotten, lost in history.
