Lewis Capaldi Thanked The Glastonbury Fans For The Support

The activities this past weekend were quite inspirational for people. There were many wonderful incidents taking place all around the world, from the Santa Clara horse parade in Spain to the glittering Pride parade in Milan, Italy. Few, though, were able to match the performance of Lewis Capaldi at the English Glastonbury festival, especially from an emotional aspect.

This 26-year-old Scottish artist was the exact antithesis to fans’ expectations, say, Frank Ocean’s Coachella meltdown a few months ago during a weekend jam-packed with nonstop performances by beloved performers from all over the world. Lewis Capaldi, a performer last weekend who has Tourette’s syndrome, abruptly stopped midway while playing a song.

However, to his surprise and delight, the audience rallied together, joining their voices in harmony to carry on the tune, showcasing inspirational support from fans. The remarkable incident was captured on video and soon gained eyes on social media, captivating the hearts of many who shared their heartfelt reactions, describing it as an incredibly touching and poignant moment.

The neurological ailment known as Tourette’s syndrome, for which Lewis received a diagnosis the previous year, is characterised by uncontrollable repetitive motions or sounds (referred to as “tics”). Numerous people, including David Beckham, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, and Billie Eilish, have been identified as having the illness.

The Brit Award-winning singer discussed how the intense pressure that followed the success of his debut album, “Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extent,” led to crippling panic attacks in this year’s documentary, How I’m Feeling Now. Lewis, who is best known for his number-one hit “Someone You Love,” openly discussed how his nervousness showed as a bothersome shoulder twitch that got worse as he was creating songs.

After apologising to the Glastonbury audience for his performance, the Scottish singer said, “You might not see me for the rest of the year.
