You must be very disappointed and surprised, but I felt emotional seeing that there were many fans who were equally happy. Seeing it up close, I know well how long they waited, so my heart hurts even more… I thought we would have to return the love we have received… Now I am indebted to many fans because I couldn’t return it in the end. Normally, I don’t have a lot of confidence and I am very afraid, but I thank the fans who saw me, I could see that I was a person worthy of receiving love. I have been happy many times thanks to my fans and I have received healing through them. To live up to the expectations of my fans and be a great singer was my motivation.
