I'm greatful that I can be a part of supporting Research to Find the cure for COVID -19!! 🙏🏼
And just to clear things up for people who would rather believe sensationalist headlines than do their own research about the nature of this virus. I am not currently sick. When you test positive for anti-bodies it means you HAD the virus which I. clearly did as I was sick at the end of my tour in Paris over 7 weeks ago along with many other artists in my show but at the time, e all thought we had a very bad flu. Thank God we are all healthy and well now. Hope that clears things up for the bandwagon jumpers!! Knowledge is Power! #covid19
