The song, “On My Knees” is the only Christian song on O´Shea´s five song demo CD which she put together as part of her Senior project last year at Sonora High School. A friend familiar with O´Shea suggested that she film a video and submit her song to´s Christian Video Contest.

O´Shea filmed the video locally, in front of her house, and submitted it to Within six months over a million people watched the video, listened to her song and voted.
