From Andra: “I have crossed paths with some exceptionally generous people the past couple of days! Something really wonderful and out of the ordinary has been happening and I am completely dumbfounded…. staggered! The Youtube video for my song ‘The rain don’t talk to me no more’ was shared with The Promo Bay folk by a really nice online friend from Canada, and TPB decided to feature it on their home page! I had no idea what it was all about, and did not expect to receive such an overwhelming response. Thank you to ALL who were involved in this flash of sudden awareness. I am indescribably grateful for the immense exposure this act of kindness has generated. You can watch that video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4TAJOPy7JDY
My other, very special, gratitude explosion was caused by the amazing writer/artist/poet/living LEGEND, Koos Kombuis, who wrote an incredibly beautiful article about this internet phenomenon for news/channel24. You can read “Who is that girl with the hat?” and his other articles here: http://www.channel24.co.za/Columnists/Koos-Kombuis.
I really am the luckiest person I know… Thank you so much, everyone!”
