The Song ‘Viva La Vida’ by Coldplay – Alfred’s goosebump moment
“Hi! I am Alfred Reed and I come from the Bahamas. My goosebump moment was in 2022 when I visited Latin America, Argentina exactly. At that precise moment, I was able to get a ticket to the Coldplay concert! I was able to live that dream of singing with all my heart ‘Viva La Vida’! It was a song that my mother loved. I lost her a year ago. This song makes me get closer to her. It reminds me that music is so powerful that it not only connects hearts, but also our souls.”
