Can’t think of any
What song do you have to sing along with when you hear it?
There is a lot of songs that I sing along with when I hear it, but I think the song I have to sing along with is "Dry Cry" by Sizzla. It’s one of my favorite songs by him and is so relatable

One time someone called me to try to book me for a show. It was strange to me because most bookings go through management and I had gotten a phone call.
