  1. Thank you for acknowledging the true essence of H.E.R. being the really thin female I to thought I didn’t fit in. There are some beautiful lyricists who remind me to love me as I am.

  2. I enjoyed reading your piece. It resonated with me for all independent artists, such as my grandson and many others. Stay true to yourself. Your generation have so many more advantages in being independent than we did.
