Name: Lorraine Harrilal
Location: Montreal, Canada.
Been a fan since: I was 10 :)
Favourite Sting song: To pick ONLY one! His version of 'Soul Cake' never ceases to comfort me. 'The Last Ship' makes me cry. 'Russians' was pure genius.
Favourite Police song: 'Don't Stand So Close To Me'. I like its darkness/upbeat energy.
Favourite Sting album: 'Ten Summoner's Tales'.
Favourite Police album: 'Ghost in the Machine'.
Most memorable concert: June 18, 2013, Kingston ON, Canada. He played all of his greatest hits, I met Dominic Miller outside, and I turned 30 the next day :) Great way to ring it in.
Other favourite bands: Beatles, Bob Marley and the Wailers, U2, Fleetwood Mac, Santana, Billy Joel, Philip Glass, Ravi and Anoushka Shankar, Marvin Gaye, Bill Withers, Gotye.
In your own words: Sting has and continues to energise and uplift my spirit, in ways that I did not think were possible. He encourages and stimulates me to be reflective. He makes me a better human being. Thanks to him, I have come into contact with numerous wonderful people. I am forever grateful for his example and healing presence in the world.
