I am so overwhelmed with the outpouring of love and friendship from so many people around the world. It is absolutely humbling. I try to spend as much time as possible responding and replying to all of you out there – you mean so much to me.
This week, I have about 3,200 favorite comments, lol. But, I thought I’d start pulling a few every week that touched me in a special way. Your support is changing my world. This sort of love just proves that our world of people is a connected world of hope and dreams and people wanting the very best for each other. Thank you, thank you for the love!
Here are a few from my Facebook page this week …
The Story – I am killed! Holy Mother woman, you are a force of nature, everybody else can just go on home now! You made my day, my week, my month, wow and a cajillion wows!

I don’t know if you’ll see this, but if you do, I just wanted to say thank you. Your story means the world to me. The reason why is because in 2013 I lost my dad to cancer. It was… so hard. He was my hero. I was angry at the world. And then I heard your story. And I heard your voice. And I felt your energy. Seeing you, a survivor, has given me renewed hope. Hope that good things truly happen to good people and that it does matter the good that we as people return into the world. You are such an inspiration and I hope you win with all my heart. No matter what, I’ll be at your concerts!

Janice, Congrats. I am with the American Cancer Society in New Mexico. We are not sure how to contact you but would love to speak to you about the possibility of coming to Albuquerque next August to speak and sing at our Gala or Relay For Life Event. We would be so honored to have you tell your story and help us on our life saving mission to end this world of our biggest rival. Cancer. It would truly be a blessing for us to have you here. God Bless you and we are voting!

Janice I don’t know if you actually see these or not! But I really hope so because I just want to tell you that every time you come on stage and talk or sing I think about my momma! You remind me so much of her with that fantastic personality and big ol earrings! You make me feel like I’m closer to her in every way! She lost her 7 year battle with breast cancer September of last year. And I just want you to know that in my house you are known as Momma Janice because you fill heart with so much happiness because you are so much like her in every way!!! We love you!

Sweet angel I am serious about you getting what’s yours . I was at my sister’s funeral service Monday night and I had to take the time to vote while there because I did not want to miss it. I also told family members to do the same. Prayers and Love for Thanksgiving blessings to you and your family…

JANICE, I know you’re probably overflowing with messages right now but I needed to tell you that I have no idea what you’ve been through but my mom and I have been your biggest fans through out this season of the Voice and you tell your story so incredibly well through song. I was listening to the song you sang in episode 18 and I just busted out in tears and I have no idea why. It’s like I felt all the love you had to give and it overpowered me. What you do is so important to the music industry today because of the times we’re living in. If you can relay your feelings through song like that, then you definitely deserve to win! We love you so much! Thank you for being you,

Janice- l screamed. I cried. I didn’t know what to do. God gave you a second to share your gift and story to us….the world. I’ e never heard anyone sing like that in my life and I’m 65 years old. God bless you, your husband and daughter. You have lit up the world. You may not know what you did, but we saw God through you. Thank you.

Wow I just saw your performance on the voice and I don’t even know what to say… I have chills through my body and am shaken to my core by the beauty the power the versatility of your voice… I haven’t felt this way about a performer in a long time and I will definitely be following you to see where your career leads you and hopefully it is to my town so I can see you perform!!! I wish you all the great things that life has to offer.. Sincerely,
– Laura B
Girl, you’ve been my favorite since day one. My God, you killed it tonight! I had goose bumps the whole damn time! I can’t stop humming the lyrics to the song you sang. What an amazing performance! You always give it your all. You have got what it takes to go far beyond the show itself! Incredible! Powerhouse!
