London, England ~ May 25, 2013 ~ Reflection by Toni, Jim, Marie, and Tony 



From the get-go we knew the normally very posh and reserved Royal Albert Hall was going to see a show and an audience unlike any others.  Roger walked out on stage and immediately gave everyone permission to laugh, cry, sing, and hug our neighbors if we so desired (even if we didn't know them).  And that's exactly what happened.  'Keep Calm & Carry On' was not the English way last night.

Roger shared his stories with us, telling us how music would just flow from his heart, and he had no idea that the feelings within him could form songs that would go out and touch the lives of so many people.  The audience hangs on every word.  He is a joy to listen to whether he's singing or talking to us.  He shares what is in his heart and soul.

Roger and the band were spot on perfection with their performance, and the acoustics in the Hall were amazing.  The pure emotions running through the building were electric. People were on the edge of their seats for every song.  The die-hard fans from all over the world showed their love for Roger by waving large red heart-shaped balloons with the words "I Love You" on them.  Roger reached out to take one, held it to his chest, then placed it on his piano.  At the end of the show he held the balloon up to the audience to show us those words - "I Love You" was his message back to us.
