A Letter To Kali Uchis

Kali Uchis,

Last night, I got the opportunity to see you at the House of Blues in Boston. I'd like to say that you have been one of my biggest inspirations since I was about 18 years old. The day I heard "Loner" and "Melting" was a day I had found a new sound. Kind of like a Hispanic Amy Winehouse, but giving you that description wouldn't be giving you enough credit as your own artist.

You sounded very different to a lot of female singers nowadays, and even though my voice was different to yours, I wanted to be like you. When I say that, I don't mean literally like you, but in the sense that I wanted to have the same uniqueness as you. Something that made me special like you.

You have this sexy, angelic, Latina voice, and it inspired me to do something extraordinary with my life. Your music had a soft flow that made me wanna swing my hips back and forth, and if I had a pole in front of me, I'd own the hell out of it. I'd instantly become the best dancer.

You bring out that extra Latina in me. Because that's what I am. I am a proud Latina woman, and you have helped bring out that extra spice that I needed in my presence as a singer. Watching you perform live was what I expected from you, but it was 10 times better than that. It was like playing that first song of yours except you were actually there in front of me.
