The Song “Runaway” by Aurora – Tony’s goosebump moment
“Hi, I’m Tony from Nigeria. My goosebump moment was when I heard the song “Runaway” by Aurora. This song, I actually heard it when I was going through my Instagram Reels. I fell in love with it and I had to download it. When I listened to it, it stirred up emotions in me, different emotions. Mostly sadness because, well I went to look into her and I found out that most of the people don’t listen to her songs anymore, most are forgotten. Yeah, I was kind of sad after noticing that. I went on to listen and listen and listen and I kept on putting it on repeat and listening and listening to it. That is my goosebump moment.”
