"I liked that it was something people could actually dance to," she said. "None of my other songs are like that, so I thought it was a pretty big accomplishment."

This is one of the tracks that can be heard on Andrea's album "War," a compilation of songs ranging from the classic love song to acoustic beats that mesh together to chronicle a different kind of war.

"I think we all face battles in life," Andrea said. "And at the end, we want to say we've won, and that's what this album is all about."

Andrea, who just moved to Wisconsin to attend the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, will record the album within the next six months in Springfield, she said.

"But it's the end result that matters, not how much time it takes to accomplish it," she said.
