One DeGeneres spread the word; everyone began watching the video. “Lonely Christmas” has become a worldwide hit for the young singer/songwriter.

In a press release from Michael J. Media Group, Wallis said she had no idea her song would be a hit:

“I am still in awe. When we released it, I was expecting to have a few family and friends tune in, but we never expected this incredible reaction,” exclaims WALLIS. “Loneliness is a universal feeling, regardless of if you’re surrounded by people or are literally alone. Though everything may feel so permanent right now, this song is a message of hope. Like I sing in the song, ‘It’s alright, we’re just stuck at a red light.’”
