Getabout member Hannah and her support worker Bek were lucky enough to attend Lionel Richie’s recent concert at the Sandalford Estate in the Swan Valley, thanks to Rocky Bay’s Wishing Tree.
Lionel is Hannah’s idol and when she heard he was coming to Perth, she just had to see him live. How could the Wishing Tree committee refuse such a request?
John Farnham was an inspired warm-up act. Hannah enjoyed singing along and quickly made friends with the other concert goers. By the time Lionel Richie took to the stage she was bursting with excitement. He opened the concert with “Hello” one of Hannah’s favourite songs and it wasn’t long before she was up and dancing.
“It was absolutely fabulous” Hannah exclaimed “It was as if he was singing the song just for me!”
She now proudly wears her souvenir T-shirt and loves to reminisce about the evening.
