Congratulations and many blessings on a major influence and role model in my life. kd has given me so many things and has given all of us so much love and energy and hard work. May you be blessed all your life and may you have everything you need and want always.

I have loved k.d.lang since I first saw her perform in 1987 on the Tonight Show. She is without a doubt, the BEST voice of our generation and there's no one that has earned nor deserves this award more than k.d. k.d.'s voice will become more and more popular as the years pass. Long after we're all gone, k.d.'s voice will continue to be one of the best. In my opinion, she will be even more popular fifty years from now as everyone listens and loves her voice and her poetic lyrics and music. Long live k.d. lang!! We your loyal fans, love and congratulate you!.
