Kelsea Ballerini Offers Advice To Young Fan
Kelsea Ballerini offered some sage advice to a pre-teen fan who wrote her a letter about how her music is helping her deal with bullying at school.
Twelve-year-old Ellie wrote in part,
“I just really wanted to say thank you. Thank you for having a voice that helps mend my troubles. The song I want to recognize most is ‘Homecoming Queen.’ This song reads my mind. I’ve been feeling really sad because people have said some nasty things that I try not to acknowledge.”
Kelsea responded directly to Ellie on Instagram because she said she couldn’t find her address to write back. The singer wrote,
“Middle school was really hard for me too. It’s a time when everyone is starting to discover who they are, it’s awkward and emotional, and unfortunately, the way some people feel like they have it together is by tearing other people apart. Try your best to breathe through it and let it roll off of you, and please please remember that it’s not your weight to carry. It will make you stronger and full of grace. I also promise that middle school will be over before you know it. Hang in there, my little homecoming queen. Sending you so much love and light . . .”
