Anything else we should know, or you want to share: Three years ago, Heather Mae got vocal nodules and was told she would never sing again. She made a promise to herself that if she ever got the chance to sing again, she would only write music that meant something, that helped bring people together and made the world a better place. After a three year hiatus from the music business, HM launched a Kickstarter and smashed through her $15K goal raising $18K in 30 days. In June 2016, she released her social justice infused pop record, entitled "I AM ENOUGH" which debuted at #60 on the iTunes Pop Charts. She toured nationally for six months and plans on continuing her activism-inspired touring in April 2017.
