#Gratitude .... I was overcome last night and had to tell you all how much I appreciate you supporting my music... I’ve made a living not only as a musician - but more special than that- on authenticity! only because you have all supported me the whole way as I have been shared who and where I am... from the beginning and through all life’s ups and downs.... I’m proud my fans are so diverse ... but we all stand for one thing in common.... fighting to live authentic lives, as different as we might be. we don’t have to all be the same to appreciate each other here, as we strive to find our own version of happiness in life .... I’m proud of us! #authentic #kindness #tolerance #acceptance
Today my family visited the gravesite of my Oma (grandma Ruth) at the Arlington cemetery here in D.C. she was a huge Inspiration in my life. She was an aspiring Opera singer and poetess when she and my grandfather fled Germany before WW2. She raised 8 children in the remote wilds of Alaska. Teaching them all to sing. She lived to see me become successful, and with tears in her eyes said it was worth it to have given up her dreams to see them come true for me..... I wrote My Father’s Daughter for her and my dad and all the sacrifices they made. In the 30’s She landed on Ellis Island. Made her way to Anchorage Alaska. She WALKED over 200 miles to Homer with my grandfather. Raised 8 children in the wild. And she was buried with her second husband, a Marine, here in @arlingtonnatl . What a journey in one life. As we stood around my Grandmothers grave, a horse and carriage and Marines accompanied a casket draped with an American flag. Kase was so moved, he saluted for the entire procession. So much history for my family here. So much history for our country here. So much works history here. #sacrifice #service #family
