Singer/songwriter Stevie Nicks has dedicated her latest album to a fan who lost her battle with cancer in 2008.
The Fleetwood Mac star’s In Your Dreams is dedicated to ‘Sara, my sweet girl’ and Nicks explains the mention is for a fan who became a good friend.

She tells Spinner.com, “She had a very rare kind of cancer, and our friend Lisa Loeb connected me and her parents. They brought her to a show, and we became very close. She was about 21 when I met her, and she’d been fighting this cancer since she was 17.

“I was in very close contact with her and her parents through three years. In 2008, I flew to Pennsylvania and spent a day with her. She died three days later.

“When Sara died, I was in Mexico in a very quiet house, and I was hit extremely hard. She loved my music so much, and she wanted me to do another record so much, and I was still on that ‘I’m never going to do another record’ kick.

“I just loved her so much, and it was very hard to lose her. She fought a really good fight between 17 and 24, and I dedicated the record to her because I felt in so many ways that it belonged to her.”
