To every band member, backing vocalist, producer, engineer, writer, arranger, or side artist who has ever blessed me on stage or in the recording studio - I salute you. May the law of reciprocity always apply in our lives. May you stay committed and dedicated to the music ministry and may you be encouraged. To all of my friends in any form of media - if you have said something good about me or if you have said something bad about me, I thank you as long as it was the truth. To all my friends, may you know that I am forever grateful for every hug and for every argument. We did it in love and ain’t nobody mad but the devil. To all of my brothers and sisters of song who departed during the last 10 years, I am saddened for your passing, but I am gladdened for your life everlasting.
