First of all, if you’re on here LOOKING for the fastest way to my heart, we should maybe talk and figure out what’s up with that. Just sayin’.
When I heard one of my favorite singers, Ann Wilson of Heart, canceled a whole bunch of concerts on her tour because she lost her voice, I CRIED.
When I heard Adele had to cancel her entire US Tour because of a hemorrhaging vocal cord in 2011, I CRIED.
When I heard Alicia Keys struggle to get through the back half of her second song of many during a live performance, I CRIED.
***LET ME BE CLEAR: I didn’t have tickets to these concerts; I wasn’t sad that I was going to miss out on their performances. I cried because I ached to be able to help them so they wouldn’t have to experience this painful, demoralizing stressor which I was all too familiar with. I cried because I longed to help them so they wouldn’t have to break the hearts of their fans. I cried because I know how to prevent this from ever happening but didn’t know how to get to them so I could help them.
I STILL WANT TO HELP THEM. I also want to help you. I don’t enjoy the heartbreak, especially when it’s so preventable!
