My dear krew, some of you may not know but it is JAHAN’S BIRTHDAY TODAY!!! 25 years ago, my big sister was birthed into the world. I wanted to express my gratitude and love for her, because I know a lot of you out there love and cherish her as well. This is almost too hard to write because there are an infinite amount of amazing things I could say about her. You all know that when it comes to music, she has insane pipes and it still blows my mind in the studio or shows every day. You know that as a songwriter, she is ever-evolving and knows exactly how to write to hit the sweet spots of the heart and the mind. As a businesswoman and networker she is undeniably fair, genuine, and loyal to the ends of the earth. These are things that everyone can see with their eyes, feel when they meet her, and know for certain when they see her perform live or on a track.
What you may not know, but as her sister who has been by her side all of my 22 years on this planet so I can attest to, is this; she has never once in my life let me down. Let anyone down, for that matter. She is through and through one of the strongest humans I know. She is a rock that I can hold on to when I feel like I’m drowning. She’s the roots of my life that keep me grounded. She is the clear voice of reason when it feels like everyone else in the world is screaming at me. There is no one on this planet that I would rather share my life with, go through the bullshit with, experience the no-sleep-17-hour-flights-sick-on-the-road-writer’s-block-in-the-studio-etc. with, eat my way through all the wonderful countries of the world with, wake up every morning and eat brekky with, share tiny hotel rooms with, be entertained by your ten billion characters, listen to Sum 41 and Good Charlotte in the car with, pretend to be a creepy drum n bass duo called the Harami Brothers with, & probably live with for the rest of my life (until maybe you’re ready to get married and be a mommy, I’ll leave you alone then).
Even when she scoops out all the good chunks in my Ben and Jerry’s ice cream, she’s still the best (but seriously plz stop that J). And I am overjoyed seeing all the love you guys have already given her on her 25th birthday, it makes me so happy that the world appreciates my incredible sister as much as I do!!!!!
Jahan, I hope this year is everything you dream and hope and wish for, and that you are happy & healthy through all the good and bad; you deserve it more than anyone I know. Thank you for being everything that you are to me, I don’t know how I’d get by without you. I love you to the moon and back, Beanie
