"I've always loved your music, but it had a profound impact on me when I was living in NYC and going through the worst time in my life while desperately missing home. I didn't go out much, but urged myself to go and see the show you were a part of at the National Museum of the American Indian. I was late, but when I walked in you were playing Cold Wind. You smiled when you saw me walk in, which was so reassuring, and as you sang about the drums of home I felt like I was transported to beautiful Denendeh. I made the move back home a couple weeks later, which was the best decision of my life."

"When I heard you live, I was so incredibly amazed at your voice, of course, but also how the energy of the space was transformed. Maybe it was just me, but whatever happened, the experience was amazing. I have attended many live performances and there was a power in the energy created in your performance that cannot be replicated."

"Without your songs I might not have made it through some very dark moments in my life. Music heals, and your music especially heals this broken indigenous heart. It helps me realize that I am not alone. Keep singing Leela. You're healing hearts."
