    She sounds judgemental saying "I wasn't fast..." but she had a whole baby.
    I think she still feels judged for having a baby young so she also seems judgemental. But I could be wrong.🤷‍♀️

    I really love this young lady and yes you can SING but don't know why you haven't come out with something new perhaps like a stepping song, or maybe old school house song, that would be different, watching all of this interview the Holy spirit works in many many many ways tweet, the lord wanted you to turned to him giving him some attention was the best you could EVER DO
