I know you're pretty used to hearing this from the countless people you've inspired, but it bears repeating...
I would not be here without you.
I hardly even remember the person I was when I first walked into your studio. Singing was something I was good at, but something that confused and frustrated me - a fairweather friend I could never pin down.
You are the first teacher who saw Me, my unique instrument, and who cultivated my spirit and heart and body all into one cohesive voice....my voice.
I cannot tell you quite what it feels like to be able to stand on that stage, open my mouth, and feel the freedom of true, unencumbered expression. I feel grateful, more than anything.
You are my magic, intuitive, loving, special guardian angel, and I love you to the end and beyond"
