Listen my children and you shall hear:

An inspirational tale of one teenager and one Wyclef Jean.

"When I was 19 I wrote a letter to The Fugees, debating Wyclef on the meaning of one of his lyrics," says Twitter user @jperiodBK.

I was just a kid, no connections, and sent it to the address on the back of the album."

But he was floored when Jean called him back.  

"It was an unbelievable act of generosity from a superstar. The conversation lasted nearly an hour." 

"I was floored, even more by what came next: a lyric on The Score dedicated to the Kid.   I was just a fan, and the fact that Wyclef went so far to bless me will never be forgotten."

And the story goes on:

"You never know who your next act of generosity might inspire." 

J.Period's story has our eyes all a little teary.

We hope more artists take a lesson from Wyclef Jean, and when we come across those kids as working artists, we can continue to inspire them.
