Joy and Tears

Stephen Childs

Life-changing moment

I have visited the hall on numerous occasions and enjoyed every minute. At home, I work very long hours driving a truck trying to keep a roof over my family's head, and I suffer from depression.

In 2017 I saw Earth Wind and Fire at the Hall, they had me dancing throughout the show and I felt alive, (something that i had not felt for decades). That night I cried with joy.

Then came stand up to cancer this year, and my life was changed, I saw UB40 and children with cancer fighting on, back came the tears even as I write this they are streaming. I will fight on and I will be back.

Thank you Albert Hall for being a friend.
