Hi Sparlha,

I hope all is well on your end and that you're continuing to make amazing music. I want to thank you again for letting me use your music for my play Through the Belly of the Beast and Back To Tell.

Right now I am in the process of putting together a crowd funding campaign for a documentary about foster care and I am looking to raise between 5K and 6K.

I was just wondering how long your campaign was to raise money for your album? And how long you would suggest for raising 5K or 6K?

07.05.14Bob Vidra

How is your new office?
Did you get your new album cut?
I see that you have a show in Oakland Ca. in a few months. I’ll try to get out to California to see the show. I know I’ll have a blast
Your biggest fan.
Have a great day!
Bob Vidra

Hi Sparlha, where is the song "Canto Das Tres Racas" recorded? It doesn't sound like studio, and I love it, just voice with thunder in the background :)
Love,

Hello!

My roommate bought me your cd In The Distance back in 2006. I just stumbled on it again... omg. the BEAUTIFUL sounds that come from my comp as I type this. I had to send you a note.

You sis are a FORCE. your words speak to my soul in a way that this insane culture could never grasp. :)

Be blessed always. BIG THINGS in your near immediate future.

Thanks.

Please feel free to contact me if you are interested in the dance I have set to 'I Am That.' Thank you for sharing your gifts- Veleda

Hey lady! I was completely entranced by a video of you my friend Eva posted on Facebook, singing "Brown is the Color of my True Love's Skin." I went to bed with its melody in my head and had sweet dreams. Thank you for the gift of your music.

Are there any plans to have your music available on iTunes? If not, I'll certainly get a CD; I just wanted to check :) Also, are you ever planning on performing in Durham? It's my hometown--I'm a writer, actor and playwright there--and I'd make you welcome!

Warm wishes,
Monica

Hello dear one, this is an old friend via Tanzania, Cameroon, California...i am devastated to read that you're coming back to California !!! After all these years I am finally in gear to make the transit to New York and we're moving in the same window of time...OUCH!! I'll find you on facebook and all the other ways to stay in touch, but I did plan on showing up any day now at one of your shows. Blessed journey sister -

Aika

06.19.09ClashofCultures

Hey, so I first heard your voice checking out the YouTube preview of Pariah, and was kind of mesmerized by it. So, I looked you up again on YouTube (as creepy as that sounds and watched your performance of "Brown is the Color of my True Love's Skin" and well...this phrase sounds really dumb, but my heart kind of soared. Seriously, as someone already said, since your music isn't mainstream like Badu's or Lauryn Hill's or Martina Topley's, it makes knowing it even more of a privelage.

Your voice is better than theirs' anyway. :> Y'know, for all the worth a scruffy white girl's opinion is.

06.10.09Azariah

You are a kindred spirit. Your beauty trancends physical it is in your very being and every word.

Most Sincerely,

Sandra

04.26.09Troy Norman

Dear Sparlha,
I'm on your email list and haved owned two (or three) of your CDs since 2007. However, because I live in Chicago, I have never seen you live. I missed the one show you did at the Hothouse (I think). Anyway, I wanted to know if you will be appearing in Chicago this year at all or if you will be giving any public performances in NYC in August. I ask because I will be in town for ten days. Take care!

11.18.08Jennifer

August 23, 2007, 11:41 am. Hi Spralha, I saw your performance last night at the Innovations Center in Bridgeport, CT, and I just wanted to say that you were phenomenal. I really and trully love what you are doing, and God has given u a true gift to uplift others, and for you to spread a word through Music. I especially loved the song that you did that u dedicated to your mom, and the woman who made you angry
when you heard her speak to her 3 year old son in such a negative way. Then when she turned to you and said what she said. But you know for people like that we really and trully have to just pray for. Cause as you said, you can see the pain that she was just going through.. Thanks again for blessing us with your presence at the poetry venue, it was trully a blessing.

October 2, 2005, 3:27 am. Sparla I first saw and met you at the Jahva House on Lakeshore Ave. You are a Gemini as myself I bought your first CD with no label and you signed it. You looked at me and I felt nothing but love coming from you. I knew and told everyone I know about you and you humility. You don\'t need the music industry to validate you. You are already a STAR!!! I love you and your music. Heaven sent an angel aka Sparla Swa. Your video is awesome. If MTY or VH1 or BET would play you video one time you would become a global star instantly. I send you One Love and pray that heaven\'s blessings rain down on you.

I listened, felt, and showed some love by buying a cd, and asking for your autograph. I also showed up to a performance in brooklyn, to hear your soul speak once more... this time i brought a group of friends and they are all feelin you! Well i\'m back in the the bay now, NY was good to me, I know she will continue to guide the right people onto your path as she did for me. I hope to see you this sat @ lit lounge, and share your music

September 25, 2005, 11:11 pm. Had to get two more copies of your cd that I am sure that I will eventually end up giving away again. Think you are a great artist and the fact that most of the world doesnt know yet makes me feel kind of privileged to be among some of the first to witness greatness. Your voice is like a gentle wind on a ripe mango, jus a mek dem

September 9, 2005, 2:28 am. Thank you for blessing the stage with us at the Lee Wilson show on Saturday at the Blue Wave. From the first to the last note of your flawless performance, I was mesmerized. I hope you will come back to Boston and grace us again and again. A definite must have for the music collection. Thank you for being what music is supposed to be about. Too much crap on the airwaves these days. Be blessed and "Keep Pressing On", despite the adversities. There are so many people that need your soul edifying, awe inspiring creations. Sincerely Thankful.
