A Letter For My Community

What do I say after a night like last night?
How do I express the overwhelming love and support that filled the building so much
that every person in attendance felt it?
How do I say thank you to the multitude of people who went far above and beyond what I even hoped?
How do I show my gratitude for a community who gave so generously because they believe in me
and care so deeply about my music and my family’s journey? 

There are no words.

There is nothing I can do or say to even come close to what I felt last night,
and what I feel today as I think back on last night.
I sit here with eyes flooded, endless tears streaming, and a heart so full it hurts…almost too much.
 
I don’t have enough strength to do what I am about to do.
I can’t take this step without knowing so many stand beside me in this endeavor.
So while leaning on the God I put my faith in, I also take every one of you with me by my side - those who came to me in tears saying my music resonates so deeply with where they are in life, those who have said I am already the change in the world I long to be, those who have said I have inspired them to truly live, those who have implored me to continue making and sharing my music, those who just plain love the music and my voice. :-) I take you with me. I wouldn’t be here without you. I wouldn’t be doing what I am doing without you.
 
As I said last night, this island of Vashon that I call home, and it’s people, will always be very dear to my heart. This is where I began. This is where I became who I was made to be. You have nurtured and supported me so I could grow to where I am today, and now you are sending me off into the world to share my gift. No better place, no better people, and no better way to be sent out into the wild unknown.
 
So I leave you with a most heartfelt “Thank You”
knowing that it doesn’t even give you a glimpse of my gratitude.
This is what it’s all about…changing the world one song at a time…one heart at a time.
 
See you again my friends.
