A Very Important Message From Pia Toscano! Please Read!

Pia came here and left a rather lengthy series of shouts in the shout box this morning. To make it a little easier for you to read, I have copied all of them here.
 

Pia here.. Unfortunately, I feel the need to defend myself which is something I didn't think I needed to do on Two very special places I look to for support and as an escape to the negative world we live in.
 
First off, Jared and I have known each other for years.. He co wrote Old You Back with me and is now doing some co writes on my forthcoming album. We do our covers just for fun as as way to just keep you guys with material while we both wrap up our solo albums.
 
Secondly, I'd like to address a few specific people on here who I will not name because you know who you are. When I responded to a fan on twitter the other day saying I only have control of a few things, I was simply just stating that I do not control release dates and negotiations at the present moment.. I am blessed with a wonderful team who has been working harder than ever on getting my project out to the public.. Harvey and Damon have created a magnificent project with me that I could not be more proud of.
 
However the strategy that we have requires a bit more time, as I have been going through development as an artist which is now unheard of these days and the very reason why so many upcoming artist fail. Because they come out to soon and simply just aren't ready. I was once that artist. However, Harvey, Damon, Mark, Tom, Jeff & I are in this for the long haul and are now doing things the right way. No artist emerges over night and in fact ALL of our favorite artists have been dropped and shelved. When you come from American Idol, you are expected to become a star over night, and for some that does happen, but for most it doesn't because it just simply isn't natural. Artists spend years perfecting their performance, music, and writing before they show that too the world.. Which is why they are so polished.. I believe that is the way it should be done in my opinion.
 
With this now being my second chance, we want to make sure all of our ground has been covered so that we are prepared to face and achieve it all. I am not here to be an over night "Here today, gone tomorrow" success story. I am in this to have a stable career and I am certainly in this for the long haul. Trust me, it would have been a lot easier to just throw in the towel a year ago, but that isn't me and never will be.
 
So if you are getting antsy and impatient and choose to fire off ill informed thoughts in your mind, then do it...but the truth is, your assumptions are incorrect. Have a little faith & know that our strategy is not public knowledge yet.
 
Thank you for your support, and to most of you for having patience & believing in me.

I am going to address this directly to my dear sweet Pia:

I am literally sick to my stomach that you needed to be pushed to this point. Not many people understand the extent of the personal sacrifices you have made in pursuit of your dream.

I still have the card you wrote me when you graduated from 8th grade. In it, you thanked me for believing in you. That has not changed, and it never will.

You keep on fighting the good fight, because great success WILL be yours. There is not a doubt in my mind of that.

Hi Pia,

Just an observation:  you're one articulate, intelligent young woman!  I'm happy and relieved that you set the record straight, but sorry that you had to do it in a supposedly protective environment.

I'm sure you will continue to stand up for yourself in the most constructive fashion possible.  And know that wherever I am on the net, I got your back.   

Yours always,

Jim

One thing you learn as you get older is PATIENCE.Pia Toscano will become America's top artist when the timing is right for her.She will be known when you guys are my age as one of the best music artists EVER!

Now on another note,since I have followed music going back to the 50's,I have seen many artists that were a can't miss take alot of time and effort before they finally hit it big in the industry.I have also seen many artists come along that become famous for one song and then you never hear from them again.Being a major music artist is not easy by any means and takes alot of work,dedication, and the drive to never quit that is why many of the contestants you have seen on the music reality shows are not around anymore.

In my book, and not because I am such a fan of Pia, Pia Toscano ranks in my TOP 5 of alltime greats that I have seen come along.Her beauty, her brains, her angelic voice,and her personal dedication to NEVER QUIT will in time reward her as she is worthy of greatness.

I am totally dedicated to help as much as I can to promote Pia as best I can do.I have been suspended on twitter 3 times in the past few years because of excessive Pia promo tweets, but that don't stop me.I will continue to help Pia as much as I possibly can!

I hope that you all get your Pia mojo back and continue to support Pia also.She is worthy of it because of the dedication she has to her fans and to her career GOD BLESS PIA TOSCANO!v
