Risa Binder has a pretty incredible story about her latest single “You Came Along” which she originally interpreted to be a love song. A big believer in signs, Binder discovered she was pregnant by way of an extra heart in her cappuccino and the song suddenly took on a whole other meaning! Her daughter even makes an appearance in the music video!
Catching up with Binder, we found out more about her summer plans, her favorite dessert (Hot Fudge Sundae) and I was even given the challenge to check out The Chocolate Room in Brooklyn when I go to New York in a couple weeks!
Did you know one of Binder’s dreams is to be on a sitcom? She told us about that dream and how if she could be on a TV show, it definitely would have been The Office! She would also love to see Reba and Lady Antebellum in concert for the rest of her life, given the choice! Definitely two of our favorites as well!
It’s easy to love Binder, not only because of her music but the draw to her happy and inviting personality. She wants her music to bring happiness to others and hopefully inspire others to also follow their dreams. Also, I read she gives cupcakes out at meet and greets so she’s clearly our new favorite person. Check out our interview below!
Fun fact: did you know she was nominated for an Emmy for her song “Just Like That” which was performed on General Hospital in 2012?! Amazing! We can’t wait to see where the future takes her!
