There’s no need to check with anyone else, they just feel it…that knowing…through-and-though, balls to bone!To the observer/viewer/audience it's something that can catch them a little more off guard. It’s an instant of knowing, gone in a flash, as quickly as it appeared…but they are forever changed. The brief moment when the haze fades and all becomes clear…those things that stop you in your tracks…an experience that pulls you from your reality somewhere beyond…an interaction that takes you to a place you didn’t even know existed! We’re in the Sheffield Cathedral, with 8 amazing speakers, an Acoustic guitarist/singer/songwriter and a 20-30 strong Gospel Choir…it’s going to be quite a show!
