Today on Sing!, we release another hit song from their VHS album, “Unsteady.” They created this song about the feelings brought about by uncertainty and change within a family, but that feeling applies to any life changes, really. And we all know change can be a scary thing– you don’t quite know what will happen once you leave your comfort zone. Sometimes things don’t happen the way it was planned, sometimes you’re a little unsteady.
