She sounded wonderful on Fallon tonight.
Sounds like someone that wants to do something to help those who have it worse than her.

Can't say I'm a fan of most of her music, but I'm a fan of her as a humanitarian.

Looking forward to it, hope I don't get COVID19 before then. Staying home, avoiding everyone. I hate this disease. Be well everyone, take the precautions that are recommended.

Trump is a billionaire with rich friends. What has he done to rally them? Oh right, he's only taking donations for his reelection campaign.
