  • - Every day, I get letters from fans who live all over the world.

  • I wanted to read one to you from a young lady.

  • She lives in Birmingham, England.

  • "Hello, Ellen. My name is Shavon.

  • "My mum and I are massive fans of your show.

  • We love your energy

  • and the joy you bring to us every day.

  • We especially love when you dance.

  • Even my little sister is up on her feet busting a move.

  • One of my mum's biggest wishes

  • is to have some form of contact with you.

  • Is there any way you can make that happen for her?

  • Her birthday is April 18th.

  • My mum does so much for me.

  • There are never enough words to express

  • how much I appreciate and love her.

  • I hope I hear from you soon,

  • and give Portia our love.

  • Sincerely, Shavon."
