"My mom is one of the sweetest people on the planet. She raised me through some really tough times -- trying to work, put herself through school and be a great mom. She trusted me and gave me a lot of freedom, and really was the first person that got me involved in music. Not only is she kind, but she's the strongest person I know. She was diagnosed with breast cancer at 30 and is a survivor! I hope I will always be the person she raised me to be. I am so proud to be her son."
