“I want everyone to be okay, no matter what color they are because I in fact I don’t see colors“said the musician.
“You see colors; don’t act like you don’t, you do see them. I don’t see your visual color but yes i feel his soul, I do feel his spirit. I see the color of your spirit and your soul, and I’m seeing too many spirits and souls that don’t feel love, which is what we are supposed to feel for each other, “he concluded.
