Rising singer-songwriter Queeva is premiering the music video for her song "Live Like a Song" exclusively with The Boot. Readers can press play above to watch the clip.

The "Live Like a Song" music video finds Queeva trying to save the planet, through music, from "a silence virus," the artist explains to The Boot. Alone in a bunker, she writes and records a song to share with the world -- and although she think she's the last person left, there's someone else out there who hears it.

"I wanted to write a song that talked about what music means to me and how it’s a universal language for everyone ... [M]usic is always something that is there for them to turn to whenever they are feeling down," Queeva says of "Live Like a Song." "I really hope that is the message my fans take away from this single ... I was inspired to share that message with everyone because, in my opinion, it is very important to remember that."

Now 14 years old, Queeva (full name Queeva McDonagh) has been performing since she was seven years old. She's one of six children born to Irish parents, and although they lived in the U.S., her family spoke Gaelic; Queeva's name, sometimes spelled Caoimhe, means "gentle," "beautiful" or "precious" in that language. Although "Live Like a Song" is pop-leaning, Queeva is influenced by the Celtic tones of early Appalachian country music and is a massive Dolly Parton fan.

On June 7, Queeva will be part of the Teen Queens show at the Listening Room in Nashville; the series is organized by singer-songwriter Jamie O'Neal, who discovered Queeva in a talent competition years ago. Visit QueevaMusic.com to learn more about the artist, her music and her upcoming shows.
