rufus wainwright

Rufus Wainwright got me through college. He didn’t help me with finals or write my English papers, but he was there for me when I needed him and always had a song appropriate for my roller-coaster, college girl emotions (Why would she say that about me? How can we make this long distance relationship work? He gave me a B?!).

Rufus’ poetry, swoon-worthy voice and pure emotion are both awe-inspiring and relatable. Not to mention he did an entire Judy Garland tribute album (I mean, need I say more?) I follow and admire his work to this day, and hope to someday take the stage to perform an unforgettable duet together….but I’ll settle for shaking his hand or getting an autograph.
