"The business wasn't kind to me but people were. People paid car notes and light bills and...People bought me $100 dresses to perform at shows where I made $20. I didn't believe in me everyday. But people believed in me." Bettye LaVette
I watched an interview with Bettye LaVette tonight and she said the statement above and I thought about you. I thought about me. And how you believed in me on days and in ways I couldn't for myself. No thank you will ever be big enough. But thank you. Thank you so much.
