Adrienne. Wow. Hers is the exact same reason why I stopped singing. Or rather, why I never really put myself out there in terms of performing in front of others and developing my skill. (I've always been singing and writing, but I keep it to myself). I grew up listening to Adrienne's unique voice and it's shocking to learn that one of the most talented vocalists out there, who's actually had some measure of success, has the same securities I do about making music. Lord have mercy.
Sista Adrienne, thank you for sharing your story, and please don't be scared anymore. And Auntie Tamar, thanks for using your experience to offer some wisdom on what's worth caring about for an artist.
