Dear; Beyonce

Hello, my name is Emeline and I’m such a big fan of you! I LOVE your music so much, I can’t listen to anything else. I love your beautiful singing voice, it reminds me of my nana when she used to sing to me all the time. I wish to meet you one day or get to see you perform. I also really like your hair, I wonder how you keep it like that. I very much appreciate your amazing music, you're my idol !
