  1. I wasn’t quite in my 20’s when she passed away, so to see that she was 22 really breaks my heart and at the same time lets me know she really achieved so much busting into the scene at such an early age.

    Now that it has been over 10 years, and new female artists are influenced by her, it reassures me that she was truly one in a million. ❤
