    By this point, I’ve practically memorized “Harlem”. Damn, you’re good. Your cameraman/woman is also phenomenal. I want to call the whole thing, raw, but people have abused that word. It was naked and exposed, allowed to rot like fresh deli meat forgotten on the sidewalk on a hot summer day. I promise that’s a good thing!

    No one knows the kind of pain someone is going through at any moment in time. Thanks for having the courage to even show us a tiny glimpse of your soul because it resonates within mine. I am now one of your biggest supporters (Fan sounds mediocre). I hope to have the pleasure of seeing you live one day.

    I am literally obsessed! Your work reinstates my faith that there exists a man for me with values and is handsome! Your work is amazing and it gives me that extra push that I need when I just can’t seem to get through the day. I can sit for hours hypnotized by your words.
