Popdose would like to introduce you to Vaness Alegacy, a Toronto-based singer; we are presenting  her debut video, which is also her first single, “Hoping & Waiting”. Ms. Alegacy is a raucous and energetic fireball whose delicate, soulful vocals and raw punk attitude is a major catalyst to her overall presence. “In a world of producer-driven pop where every act sounds the same, Vaness Alegacy is the freshest artist I’ve heard in a long time. The combination of talent and unforced fusion of rock and urban is the future!” says music director of “Canadian Idol”, Orin Isaacs.

“Hoping & Waiting” tackles the struggle of watching someone you love deal with addiction. The song speaks to the impact addiction has on one’s family and friends and paints a picture of what it’s like to watch someone deal with something so painful and destructive – knowing in the end, you can’t help that person if they don’t think they need it. “Letting go isn’t the same as giving up. It’s just sometimes the only option.” says Vaness Alegacy.
