Philanthropist and Billboard #1 Charting Recording Artist Hilary “The Songbird” Roberts has a story of unimaginable troubles, traumatic circumstances, survival, and redemption. When her life was up-side-down and disease-ridden, Hilary turned to music to survive. With the support of some close friends, she was connected to help, and eventually given the tools to explore a music career, which ultimately saved her life. Hilary now dedicates her life to paying this deed forward; trying to help those in need, spread her message, help save lives, and ultimately make a positive impact on society through her music, her philanthropy, her docuseries, and her podcast.
Hilary released “Just Let Go” off her forthcoming album on April 24. Earlier this year, Hilary released a single “Good Man”, which is currently at #16 on the Billboard Dance Club Chart! She is currently working on finishing her first album, which is set to release this summer. Her past chart-toppers released this year include “There For You,” (charted #10 on Billboard Dance Club Chart in the US) and “Back To Life” (charted #1 on Billboard’s Dance Club Chart in the US) and “Fight to the Other Side”, also known as the song that saved the life of her friend, mentor, and survivor of Muscular Dystrophy, Annie Blake. Her most recent single, “Christmas With You” – was released just in time for the holidays, and garnered over half a million views in less than a month.

It’s Hilary’s greatest wish to know that people have already been healed and continue to receive treatment in their journey to recovery and that there are a lot more who will get the help they need as the awareness of the foundation grows.
