‘Forever Young’ by Jay-Z and Beyoncé – Sasha’s goosebump moment
“My name is Sasha and I come from The Bahamas. My goosebump moment happened when I went to a Beyoncé concert. It was the On The Run 2 Tour with her husband Jay-Z. ‘Forever Young’ came on and all of the lights in the studio just dimmed, everybody put their phone lights on and she played some of her memories. It was just a very nostalgic moment because as you’re watching this, you’re going through your own memories of when you were younger. It just gave me such goosebumps and an appreciation for life that I feel like we don’t spend a lot of time thinking about it as we go through our days. That was my goosebump moment. And it’s a really good song, so it was just a really beautiful moment shared with a bunch of strangers that I probably will never recreate. I mean, I’m hoping that she does, but that definitely is my goosebump moment.”
