With so much gratitude and love - thank you!
Your generosity left me speechless. I apologize for the delay, but I had to process a lot before responding. I honestly had no idea if this was an attainable goal, if my friends, family & fans would be open to this platform, and I especially had no idea that we'd exceed this goal by 10%.
Everything that I want to say to thank you sounds so trite and expected - but really, your support (in every sense of the word) fills me with such powerful love I found myself on the brink of tears. This project means everything to me, and your belief not only me, but also my art, is the most valuable gift I could receive.
I've said this before to my close acquaintances - this project, these songs, everything feels bigger than me. It's daunting to look at each song as a mountain, this project as a world, but it's such an honor to know that you're right there with me, rooting for me as I navigate something so incredibly immense.
My wish to you all is that you feel the love that I feel. There is nothing in the world more powerful than love, and we truly need it now more than ever. I also urge you to create something - anything. There is nobody else in the world who can create your art the way you do. Thank you for embracing mine.
With endless love and gratitude,
