There’s not much I could say that would encapsulate how beautiful this moment was in person but I implore anyone reading this to watch this subjectively:
A young man who gave it everything, when he had almost nothing, to achieve his dream & that dream actually comes to fruition. That man gets the opportunity to say goodbye to the people who saw him evolve into the phenomenal talent that stands before them, a group of peers & an adoring public that never ceased to believe in him as they give him a sendoff worthy of a talent as great as his deserves.
Like those people & myself screamed at the top of our lungs that night in Reseda: Thank You Willie
This time yesterday I was headed to work. Besides whatever couple of minutes I manged to sneak on my way to a funeral & with my niece at my brother’s house I’m on no sleep & can’t, apparently.
The day has finally arrived.
