How you were so selfless I’ll never understand.”

Miley continued to praise Janice’s beautiful soul, as she added:


“The way you found the good in everything. You are now a rainbow. Something beautiful that comes after something so gloomy. You were the only artist EVER, that I tried so hard to “sign”, was going to create a label just so YOU could be on it. No one has heard them and I hope to share at an appropriate time, but the records you were creating with @brandicarlile (where it all began , the story ) and my dear writer friend @ilsey were so magically beautiful JUST LIKE YOU…”
