Suffering from a genetic disease that causes her to gradually lose her hearing, a great admirer of Harry Styles has given herself the mission of storing as much of her idol’s music and concerts as possible before becoming deaf.
Canadian Nicole Meyers is a huge music lover, which makes the prospect of losing her hearing all the more difficult.
The young woman told her story to The National to CBC News, which was relayed by the magazine 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 one who attended four recent concerts of her idol in Toronto, California and London where she saw him twice at Wembley Stadium.
“I have two brain tumours, one on each cochlear nerve. This means that I will eventually lose my hearing, explained the young woman. 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 Meyers considers Harry Styles a performer who brings ‘so much fun and important things’ into her life; including new friendships with other fans met during the shows.
After more than two years on the road, Styles concluded his sold-out tour – which took him across the United States and South America, Asia, Europe and Australia – with one final performance Saturday night in Italy.
On Instagram, the 29-year-old British singer posted a moving and long video highlighting the strength of the community that has been built around his music and his values of love and inclusion. “Thank you for having changed my life”, launches the artist there to his admirers.
