    I am definitely excited for Lee’s next album. It never seemed as if RCA had him as a priority and I’m so glad he’s going to be able to make this album more “Lee style” as he tweeted recently. He is an amazing artist/musician and has become my favorite singer. He took the high road with this situation as he has every time and it only endears him to his fans all the more! Can’t wait for the next chapter in Lee’s career!!!!!

    Lee has too much talent to sit idle.. RCA didn’t backhim, he’s better off without them!.. I for one can’t wait to hear what he’s up to, and to buy any music he puts out..I’ve never been drawn to a artists music like Lees, he sings with passion.. You just believe him.. That’s so important in music!

    Yes I am very excited that Lee came out publicly about what happened with RCA. Lee is a Class Act in every way. I’ve always liked him as a person and as a musician. He gives shout outs to many other singers including many American Idols specifically Adam Lambert not only when Adam mentored on AI but since that time on twitter. I wish Lee the best of luck in his future and I will continue support him and buy his music.

    Lee is not the kind of guy to make big issues for anyone. He is just a nice guy who wants to make music. He really cares about his fans and he is talented. I hope his next album gets more play time because he has the soul of a poet. May God bless him and help him along his journey.
