JJ Grey PLEASE send a Happy 50th Birthday message to one of your BIGGEST Fans!
Dear Mr. Grey,
I am married to the most compassionate, soulful, generous man in the world, and lucky for you, he also happens to be one of your biggest fans! Your FaceBook page recognizing him as a top fan seems to be shadowed only by the birth of his children. My husband, Rick, was raised not just listening to music but feeling it. His parents were music enthusiasts and record store owners; this helped to facilitate his passion for real musical and lyrical talent. Since Rick came upon your music two short years ago, he never misses an opportunity to introduce your music to anyone who will listen. His announcement of your talent is not just for friends and family, but a random bank teller that he noticed was enjoying whatever song is on the radio to many others. It always tickles him when someone he told about your music takes his recommendation, seeks out your music, and is then excited to tell Rick what are their favorite songs of yours upon their next meeting.
We had the honor of going to our first concert of yours in July 2019 in Dayton, Ohio, and it was true love for your music and the unifying vibe we felt at that concert. We then bought tickets to see you in Dec 2019 near Miami. However, a bad accident while traveling to Florida made us miss that show. We then had the privilege to see you in Feb 2020 in Cleveland before Covid shut shows down. It was a blessing that it was your band that we witnessed before the stage went dark.
Rick is a devoted husband, loving father to 3 girls, a fun grandfather to 2 girls, and (finally) a boy. He is also a small business owner that works more hours than the day is light. Rick is a businessman who dedicates his skills to bring people together in a very cut-throat industry. Many times he finds common ground with someone based on music. Music is in his soul! Rick often shares and requests new music requests from his friends!
He is turning 50 this March, and we would like to celebrate his life and how he has touched so many lives. We understand that you are probably inundated with special requests, and thank you for even your attention to this plea. We hope you can send an informal message to him for his birthday in the next few weeks. Regardless of video or written, we would be honored for whatever your time allows. We know that it will make his birthday.
