It is 1985, and I am singing “Bohemian Rhapsody” with a crowd of 72 000 people at the Wembley Stadium in London, England. I’ve been looking forward to seeing the line up of my favourite musicians, including Elton John, Queen, David Bowie, and Mick Jagger. Now that I am here, I am filled with overwhelming anticipation. The music is blaring, the crowd is roaring, and I am surrounded by people that are like me. I am in my happy place, entranced in a euphoric state.

 

If I were alive and cognizant during 1985, I definitely would’ve attended Live Aid. I like the music of most of the musicians that performed there, but I would’ve been the most excited to see Queen play live. I love how that band can get thousands of people to sing with them. The Live Aid concert has always had a special place in my heart, and it always will.
