In another message, the singer revealed, “I have stated about a million times how much I love her and idolize her. I’ve never had the money to go see her despite being such a huge fan (and when I did have the money, I didn’t have the time). I travelled with my family to my favorite place. We’ve spent many nights singing her songs. Then, all of a sudden, destiny placed us in the same place.”
