As part of her acceptance speech the multi-Grammy award winner stated “You know, in the past few years, I have released more music than I did in the entire decade proceeding that, and I really feel like that’s down to the fact that you, the fans, wanted to hear lots of music that I would make.” “You encourage me.”
