Big Brother Chris
Below you'll read facts about my BBC. As his only little sister, I have had the amazing gift of him in my life. What I want you to know is how deeply compassionate he is, his true concern for others, and the support he has brought many artists throughout his career.
He is amazingly talented; from photography to painting, to writing to gardening. He has an amazing memory, a quick wit, and seems to have an endless recall of song lyrics.
What I hope you'll see is an amazing man making astounding differences in the lives of others through advocacy, support, and love.
