    I remember the very first time I fell in love with soul music, it was when I listened to “Say Yes” by Floetry. Marsha’s voice’s can heal me in a strange way but love her for that soooo much! Please, support her, buy her album, she’s worth it! Just look at how brave she is, putting issues like this in her first solo video! That was a very risky move, but I hope people will love her even more for that. Let’s help her to get huge! Love you, Marsh.
