“Yes, I’m still performing..”

Posted: April 12, 2011 in Uncategorized

So, yesterday was a terrible day……the greatest woman I’ve ever known (no pun intended) passed away….after 93 years of life…..my great-grandmother, Marie Wilson, is gone………even writing that sentence took a toll on me. I will say I was trying to mentally prepare myself for it because with her growing hospital visits, it was almost inevitable. But, when I tell you my great-gma WAS my family, I mean it….I don’t know what the family will be without her…her positive spirit and abundant love was that of no other I have experienced….actually, I’m lying….my dad is the only person I know who will be able to fill the spot she has left only somewhat vacant…(but he is not old at all lol)…..I cried alot…..but I smiled alot, because of all things my grandma made me do it was smile and laugh and be happy EVERY single time I saw her or heard her voice….

On top of that news, I also received news that my maternal aunt who lives in California passed as well. I didn’t know my Aunt Gwen too well, but she’s my aunt nonetheless…and to see my mother and other family suffering is pain enough. My grandmother is on my father’s side…so both sides of my family experienced significant losses on April 11, 2011.

After speaking with my cousin today he asked me a question that has been on the tip of everyone’s tongues toward me since yesterday “will you still be performing?” –>> My only answer to that is “yes”… I know that my grandma would want me to continue to perform and that’s not to be cheesy but my grandmother believed in me and she always told me I would be something major. I’m gonna do my best to make her words true………I’m gonna try to put on great shows and become great with her as the force to push me forward. I wanna some day affect the lives of everyone like she has. My dad referred to her as a very rare “Mother Teresa” type…I agree, completely…..She will always be missed and loved forever but I know that she will be with me everyday just as she always has been. I love you so SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO much grandma………………………….
