The Love Story behind “The Letter”
About Hennessy Echemendia
Hennessy Echemendia, a singer / songwriter, dreams to inspire youth through music. She hopes her music serves as people’s close confidante, and allows people to feel freely.
Due to a tumultuous relationship with her stepfather, Hennessy abruptly moved to the West Coast. While in L.A, she began living with her biological father. As a result, relations with her family greatly improved, thus her appreciation for those prior hardships.
“I was so blessed to have such a great, horrible experience. Without that horrible experience I would not be here. I would not love them so much.” — Hennessy Echemendia
During her time in Florida, Hennessy used music as a way to express negative feelings. Likewise, music also expressed her positive feelings. Through her songwriting she spoke feelings she was unable to otherwise.
