"The buildup of the song gives it a symphonic flourish, a startling, beautiful revelation that adds to the integrity of the message. With each additional reiteration, the theme becomes ever more crystal clear. Towards the work’s finale, everything gets neatly summarized into this majestic ode, a sense of purpose perfectly illustrated. “One Love Changes Everything (Feat. Bryon Harris)” shows off the remarkable delicacy of Sylvie's Songs in creating this warm, inviting universe." - Skope Entertainment

"More often than not, in the 21st century, it has become exceedingly unusual to create a strictly non-alternative pop song with minimal instrumentation – particularly one that primarily consists of acoustic instruments. Imagine, for a moment, that the listener comes across such a song, regardless of the era. The adjectives that would likely come to the listener's mind would be along the lines of 'soulful,' 'charming,' and 'beautiful.' Now, under what circumstances would the adjective 'stirring' occur to the listener? It would occur when the song in question possesses an arrangement that is well-rounded by near-virtuosic and masterful performances of the vocals and instruments, alongside a deeply thought-provoking lyrical theme that challenges one's perspective. These qualities, and more, are observed in Sylvie Abate's newest single, titled 'One Love Changes Everything,'" - Indie Vibe Magazine

"Gentle guitar introduces the piece. Small flourishes of toy box melodies intermingle within the great tapestry. By far the true soul comes from the poignancy of the lyrics which have their naturalistic imagery. Highly pastoral they let the work have a bright airiness to it with every single little moment becoming fully and completely magnified."  -  Skope Magazine
