I thank the Lord for the day I met Marré and Kumiko. It was an appointment scheduled by God. I feel like they're my children. Their love has been engraved in our heart and there to stay. Every time we meet, we are like family.
I'm excited about being a part of HEAVENESE. Their music is so different and innovative, but so fresh and cool. It's true worship. We pray that no one misses it.
