Congratulations to Liz Fulmer
2014 ended well for Millersville English major Liz Fulmer, when Lady Gaga complimented her on her original song she played at the Grandview United Methodist Church service.
From the article below:
“Hi Liz, it’s Gaga,” [the text from Gaga] read in part. “You were sensational. Keep up the amazing work.”
Fulmer quickly posted her excitement to Facebook: “Gaga texted me to say I was ‘sensational’ — #sohappyicoulddie.”
Gaga also offered Fulmer advice on a music career, which she said Fulmer could forward to her through Kinney’s aunt.
“It was a very generous offer,” Fulmer said.
Besides her role at the church, Fulmer works at Hunger-N-Thirst and studies at Millersville University, where she is finishing an English major and a music minor.
She is studying English, she explained, “because being a better writer will make me a better songwriter.”
