  1. Just saw you and FE in RVA last night. First time seeing them, second seeing you. I had to let you know I respect your humility. Both concerts you came and talked to your fans (new and old) which I think is awesome. Loved the show. Love you..keep on keeping on. Be blessed.

  2. Amazing show in Phx last night, thank you! I am still singing today. 😉 It’s great to see artists like you that truly care about the art of music and the impact it makes in our lives. Music is healing, connecting, and the truth! The audience was a rainbow of people, class, and ages. Blessings to you all, and please continue to grace us with your talent!

  3. I love the Foreign Exchange. First time hearing about them. You and I have somewhat of a connection. I am born and raised in Detroit as well and had an aunt and cousin who lived in Silver Springs, MD. My friend and I are musicians also who appreciate great music. Be blessed and keep bringing soul-uplifting songs. Musically yours, Seneferu Khepera
