"I love your music! I am a HUGE fan, and was so excited when I found out you have a fan club! I was so sad to hear about the tragedy you suffered when you had to have surgery on your hand. You truly are a hero overcoming your obstacles and following your dreams! You are a very inspirational young man! I am very proud to become a member of your fan club! ~ Kyle, Rochester, MN"
