I had a tearful moment this morning after realizing that we all came together as a global community and danced while I played music in my living room. It was beautiful to experience and I’m truly humbled by the amount of love I’ve received. Thank you to everyone that supported me on this journey. Let’s continue to uplift each other as we get thru this dark time. #gratitude 🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽 #DNiceHomeSchool #ClubQuarantine • art by @chuckstyless
