"It’s been pretty crazy for me since people started to hear ‘Better in Blak’ and it’s been amazing to have the stories which were inside my head resonate with so many people. I just can’t wait to take my little band family and some very good friends on the road for The Homecoming Queen Tour. Really hope you can hold onto your ticket with all the changes I’ve been forced to make, but if not, I totally understand –refunds are available from your point of purchase.
I can’t tell you how much I am looking forward to this now!!" - Thelma Plum
