I am aware that some of my fans have noticed that I have had a low profile this summer and will wonder why I have not been present in promoting my new album, which I am very proud of. I learned that I needed a kidney transplant due to lupus and I've been recovering. It was what I needed to do to regain my health. I honestly had to share it with you. So I want to make my thanks to my family and the incredible team of doctors for everything they've done for me, before and after the surgery. And finally, there are no words to describe how much I thank my wonderful friend France Raisa. She gave me the best gift and sacrificed herself by donating her kidney for me. I love you so much sister. Lupus is still misunderstood, but some progress has been made. For more information on Lupus, please visit this page: www.lupusresearch.org/ For grace through faith.
