stop that your voice would never come back to me. this is me i'm for. it's never easy to overcome a vocal crisis or vocal difficulties unscathed especially unscathed at the psychological of that. because you're so deeply connected to your voice. and because you need a huge amount of confidence to be able to draw on your voice in front of thousands of spectators in tight in the moment you lose trust in your voice when it becomes very difficult to stay relaxed and you perform with the c.e.o. should view they. want a militia. so again this is very unpleasant but because you want to sing out this closet practically promised your fans you would. mind my love performing love being in front of an audience or that makes it all the more frustrating when you have to wait. but you also know that if you're patient sooner or later you will be

6:22 am
the happens even if you experience the coronavirus these ton of enforced silence. if. it's been a tradition that your vision is it of course i was in a very fortunate situation. i don't always have a house when i live there with my family we have a big garden. so having to stay at home really felt like a holiday. just right and i'm also doubly fortunate in that i've had another baby my baby with my 2nd wife which is a wonderful addition to our family. so this time of turning my focus inward this and it forced contemplation because it also had a very positive side for me. but many of my colleagues in different fields have been hit very hard by this forced down time want to and there's still suffering its impact on the want to live the are going to hit disproportionately hard in this entire situation we found ourselves in these incomes and can still keep. for
