It’s pretty awesome when someone you admired growing up also admires your work! I was freaking excited yesterday when I read a post on my YouTube channel for the video “You Gotta Believe” from user MulitFreebutterfly saying that she bought “You Gotta Believe” after hearing it in a video put together by actress and comedienne Kim Coles.
Being the curious kitty I am, I wanted to see what was going on so I searched for the video on YouTube and found this beautiful entry by Kim regarding her journey to resorting her natural hair. Watch the video below:
I was SO excited to hear my song used by her and for such a beautiful video chronicling her natural hair journey. It turns out the video has also been featured in Essence Magazine online. I tweeted Kim and thanked her for using my song and she tweeted me back today saying this:
I find it super cool when someone I admire takes the time to reply back and the fact that she was touched by the song and used it in such a personal video makes me feel awesome. Thanks for making my day Kim Coles!
UPDATE May 21… look at the sweet words Kim Tweeted me:
