As Singletary notes, "During this time of quarantine and uncertainty, we have been forced to contemplate life going forward. As an artist these things come out in different ways. For me it’ s been about keeping my family together, focused and safe. On the other side of that, I’ve found ample amount of uninterrupted time to make art."
