Ava Della Pietra wanted to add some positivity to this world during these uncertain times.

That’s why the 15-year-old professional singer from Stony Brook wrote “Optimist,” her new single that she released on Friday.

The song was premiered on American Songwriter Magazine.

“No matter how hard it gets, we need to realize that we are one community, and together, we can have hope for a better future,” said Ava on her new song. Click play on the video below to listen to “Optimist.”
