Thank You

Hello Alecia Beth Moore ,

I need to write to you and hope that you will read my letter on here.

I need to say Thank You. Over the course of your career I have followed you, admittedly, not just because of your singing capabilities. It is the words and heart that you put into your music, that has kept me coming back. I have a long story to tell to anyone that would listen, but sometimes I don't have the words. Over the years you have given me those words that I seem to find devastatingly hard to come by. You have offered me hope and guidance, that I was not fortunate enough to have been given, in the form of parents. Yes, I am an orphan that has made my way in this world on my own.

There were times when I went looking into my past and where I came from, only to find support in your words from Just Like Pill. What I know now is that I came from a family of 16 children. 4 siblings and myself, were the only survivors from a terrible case of child abuse. "Don't Let Me Get Me"... became my words to live by. I have tortured myself over the years because I did survive. I have faced a few demons that didn't want to give in easily and still try to haunt me. Your song "f***in' perfect"... well I almost feel as if you wrote it for me, and I have to be honest with you. As hard as it is for me to admit, it saved my life. I needed you to know that, because I know how important it is to feel that you have been heard. I not only heard your pain and suffering, you said all the words I needed to hear as I faced my child abuse, childhood molestation, and later rape.

Please do not feel that this is me asking for sympathy, I just wanted to say thank you and I pray that this message finds you.

Sanifire, I would love to listen to your story. I have found in my own journey... it is one thing that does help. The more I have talked about my past, the easier it was to let go of the fact that it wasn't my fault. I still struggle with the shame and embarrassment, but the guilt is lessening.

“It's the heart afraid of breaking that never learns to dance. It is the dream afraid of waking that never takes the chance. It is the one who won't be taken who cannot seem to give. And the soul afraid of dying that never learns to live.” --- Bette Midle

Family Portrait... powerful, moving, and I still can't make it through the whole song. I would apologize, but I think you understand why. You are an amazing person Alecia, just f***in perfect. Your heart speaks to many out here that have felt the same as you have. Keep up the awesome work and keep your head high. May you always find the right words, and the voice that no one can ever take away from you.

Hello Pink. I also wanted to say thank you as well for always being so real in your music. Most of your music brings me to tears b/c I can relate to so many things that you sing about. "Family Portrait" always gets me b/c I hear your pain and this song spoke so much to my situation as a child as well. So thank you and keep making great music!
