A beautiful person from the UK Sent me the most encouraging message ever. I feel so blessed and inspired :)
"Ms Ari, i had to write you a message today to thank you for shining your light, and brightening up my life with your beautiful voice. Everytime I listen to your songs here on YT i have tears in my eyes, not many artists can touch people’s soul, bit you do so effortlessly. When you sing, you sing from deep deep within, and I feel it. you are a free spirit, who inspires and uplifts and frees others with your realness. By you being honest with yourself and others (like about personal stuff you have shared with us on YT) it has made others think about being honest about who they are, and stop following the trend and be an individual.
I cannot wait for you to release your album, and wish you all the best with your career and whatever you choose to put your mind to, i can see it is just a matter of time.
I love how you have your pro music videos side by side with you sitting in your room singing, i like that as it is not pretentious (i hope that makes sense and does not sound negative because it is a compliment). I mean your videos and live appearances are amazing and what we as an audience would expect from someone of your calibre, but yet you can have these polished vids, side by side with you just jamming in your room…thats cool…
You mentioned that your album has a UK vibe to it…when you get a chance please come to London, and when you do play at the Indigo2 (its an itimate venue inside the 02 Arena London) This would be perfect. Like i say, its a matter of time, as talent like yours does not stay down…so i’ll see you in London! (yes i’m from the UK, so all of these gigs you will do, i will not get to see :-(
p.s i’m really sorry about you losing your brother, but was glad you were able to release, in song. It was a really beautiful rendition.
Keep doing you hun, all the best.
Gonna go and listen to your songs and covers again now…don’t worry I have the tissues ready for the tears…:-)
sorry this message is so long…but i had to let you know, your vibes make my day, and its refreshing to listen to a true artist!
My dear, you have no idea how much you just uplifted my heart with this message. Thank you so much for your encouragement. I was just thinking I should probably separate my professional videos from my ratchet ones lol, but I’m so glad you and others appreciate my artistry the way it is. The most beautiful thing is that nothing is forced and that naturally everything is working out. Without conforming… I’m so glad I’ve had this time to really grow up without the fame and scary influence of the industry. I’m happy I can watch what celebs do as an aspiring artist and learn from their accomplishments and mistakes. I’m glad I’ve had 22 years to watch, learn and react to all this, i appreciate it way more now and i alot more knowledgeable. It’s amazing the growth that can happen by just being honest and putting your craft and self first. ahhh this is so inspiring to stay on the right track!!! Thank you so much for your love and taking out the time to share this with me. I will keep it with me forever :) - Ari
