Suffering from a genetic disease that causes her to gradually lose her hearing, a huge fan of Harry Styles was given the task of storing as much of her music and concerts as possible before she went deaf.
Canadian Nicole Myers is a huge music fan, which makes the prospect of losing her hearing all the more daunting.
The young woman told her story to the National on CBC News carried by the magazine the people. She says she tries to create as many musical memories as possible, especially those of Harry Styles who is one of her favorite artists.
“Memories that I will remember forever,” said the woman, who attended four concerts of her idol in Toronto, California and London, where she saw him twice at Wembley Stadium.
“I have tumors in my brain, one on each cochlear nerve. This means I will eventually lose my hearing,” the young woman explained. Music is a big part of my life, so it scares me. I don’t want to be deaf, I don’t want to lose my hearing.”
Nicole Myers considers Harry Styles to be a performer who brings “a lot of fun and important things” into her life; Including new friendships with other fans they met during the shows.
After more than two years on the road, Styles wrapped up his sold-out tour – which took him across the US, South America, Asia, Europe and Australia – with one final performance Saturday night in Italy.
On Instagram, the 29-year-old British singer posted a touching, long-form video highlighting the power of the community built around his music and his values of love and inclusion. “Thank you for changing my life,” the artist says there to his fans.
