Stevie Nicks Pens Letter To Destroyed Hawaiian Home – Gets Mixed Reactions From Fans | Society Of Rock Videos

A massive wildfire in Maui destroyed much of the historic town of Lahaina and according to reports, the death toll was nearing 100. Along with all the tribute messages sent by people all over the world, famed singer Stevie Nicks wrote a letter telling her story about the devastated island.

Nicks started her letter by saying:

“As I am sure you have heard—the island, Maui, where I own a house I have been staying at since the 80s—and the small village, city, most magical place on earth, Lahaina, burned to the ground over the last few days.

“And to make the situation even worse my young niece, her husband and their little boy had just arrived for a very needed vacation before she started up her school year (on her way to becoming a psychologist) for 10 days.”

She added:

“They had one and a half days of fun and then—the fire started. The power went out at 5:12 am (Tuesday morning) but they had no idea why—It was still out at noon, realizing that many surrounding houses had also lost power. It was a mystery.

“My house is 15 to 20 minutes from Lahaina—but still no one knew about the fire. We knew here in Houston, but there was no way to get Jessi (my niece) on the phone. The entire area of Lahaina and everything around it was down. But here in Houston… we knew.

“There was no way to know that this amazing town that had survived so much for so long would burn down and disappear into the history books, leaving so much sadness, destruction and death behind in its wake.”

Nicks continued her letter by mentioning what the island meant for Fleetwood Mac. She recalled:

“This island, in so many ways, defines Fleetwood Mac and me and our families. Mick and I came here in 1978, went up to Kula to look at a huge, beautiful house and stood in front of it listening to the gentle magical wind. He said to me, ‘I will live and die on this island.’ I knew he was telling me his truth. John also lived here in Maui for a long time—Christine never lived here but visited many times.

“My truth was that I wanted a house here just so I could spend time in Lahaina walking the streets; visiting the art galleries—sitting on the rock wall—Most all the opals I wear on my fingers came from a store on Front Street. I hope the sweet lady who owned that store was able to grab all her opals and run. I hope she made it out.”

The icon posted her letter on Instagram with the caption “Lahaina is not gone— It is just away. With Aloha, Stevie Nicks” and it got mixed reactions on the comments.
