“SHE IS VERY UNIQUE, SHE HAS HER OWN STYLE, AND SHE DOESN’T FIT IN ONE CATEGORY. I CAN SEE HER GOING VERY FAR.”
“HER ALBUM DOES A GREAT JOB OF CONTRASTING THE NEGATIVE AND POSITIVE LIFE EXPERIENCES, AND SINCE YOU CAN’T APPRECIATE SUNSHINE WITHOUT RAIN, I CAN DEFINITELY RELATE TO A LOT OF HER MUSIC. IN A SOCIETY WHERE MUSIC IS OFTEN ROBBED OF EMOTION, I CAN DEFINITELY APPRECIATE A VOICE THAT CAN MOVE ME TO TEARS”
