Finding out about me online or in between these pages or in your headphone.
Without your support, there's no way I would ever have gotten to stand in the middle of the Staples Centre & perform in my school shoes.
I can't wait for tonight's show. Together we'll make it magic. I'll see you there.
Such a sweetheart!
