    I really appreciate this post! I love music and I think this is a good way to promote female artists that may not be properly recognized otherwise. It is definitely a little more challenging for a female to be recognized for something outstanding she does. It is always a good idea to promote female artists because of the freedom they have gained over many years. Clare is amazing to be touring and supporting causes at the same time and I respect her for that. Also,the fact that she has worked with Adele is amazing to me. Adele is probably one of my favorite artists and I respect her work. Great post!
