Singer Ariana Grande has written heartfelt letter for the LGBTQ and how the community has played an important role in inspiring them as artistes.
The musician penned the open letter on account of Gay Pride Month as a part of the 2018 series of love letters published by Billboard.
Grande, 23, recounted her experience of growing up with a “gay brother”.
“I grew up with a gay brother whose every move I would emulate. I idolised him. Everything Frankie did, I would do. My music being embraced and celebrated by the LGBTQ community is all I ever truly cared about when I thought about my career goals early on.”
She also highlighted the importance of music in bringing people together.
“Love is like music. It knows no boundaries and isn’t exclusive to any one gender, sexuality, race, religion, age or creed. It’s a freedom and a delicious luxury that all people should be able to sink into and enjoy every moment of,” she wrote.
Grande said she is “eternally indebted” to the LGBTQ community.
“I hope to create anthems for you that wrap you up with comfort and make you get your best life for as long as I live. Thank you for celebrating me the way I celebrate you,” Grande added.
