How Dear Evan Hansen’s ‘Waving Through a Window‘ became a survivor for Katy Perry:
In her phase of distress, the 2017 musical drama ‘Dear Evan Hansen’ deeply impressed Katy Perry. She saw the acclaimed movie in April 2017. The movie is an adaptation of a book by Steven Levenson. Dear Evan Hansen is the story of a mentally depressed high-school boy.
In an expressive act, Evan sang “Waving Through the Window,” to release his feeling of sorrow and loneliness. Both the song and the message filled some spirits in Perry. Katy Perry was so influenced by the topic that the vocalist eventually returned to watch Dear Evan Hansen again in October.
She later planned to cover it on the deluxe album. The pop-singer has recently recorded a cover of “Waving Through a Window” for the new 20-track deluxe edition of Dear Evan Hansen. She has recorded the song to convey a consoling message for anxiety sufferers.
Katy has also now learnt to transform her pain into positivity, as she remarks in an interview:
” … then comes along a song that speaks to you, that makes you feel like, ‘Gosh, I can get through this. If she can get through this, I can get through this.'”
She has; in fact, written on her Social Media accounts.
“In my own life, I’ve struggled with depression, and like so many, always feeling alone in the battle of wanting to belong. That night, I was particularly struck by the song ‘Waving Through a Window,’ it was the embodiment of the mental isolation I sometimes fought.”
She also remarked that the tune will “continue the conversation on mental health and all its complexities.”
