A PLEASURE, COMING OVER HERE AND SUPPORTING THE TROOPS IN YOKOSUKA. YOU KNOW WHAT I’M
SAYIN, I ACTUALLY WANT TO SEND A SPECIAL SHOUTOUT TO ALL THEM FOR HOLDING ME DOWN AND
ALLOWING ME TO LIVE MY DREAM AND KEEPING ME AND MY FAMILY SAFE, ALRIGHT, SALUTE.” SEVERAL FANS WERE INVITED UP ON STAGE TO DANCE
