If you’ve ever asked how Tyrone and I met, you know this story.
Picture it. East Lansing, MI. Fall. 2006. *dream music*
I was invited to come to MSU Gospel Choir’s first rehearsal of the school year. Rehearsal starts and some stuff happens then we start the icebreaker.

🎵He heals me. He knows the real me. He accepts me. He never hurts me.🎵 He Heals Me – India.Arie
🎵In this crazy world, we all deserve a second chance.🎵 Second Chance T Pain
🎵When I see your face, there’s not a thing that I would change cuz you’re amazing just the way you are.🎵 The Way You Are -Bruno Mars
