In your own words: It had always been my dream, to meet him in person once. And this dream really has become true last week! I was invited from the FFH Radio Station near Frankfurt in order to listen exclusively to the new album "My Songs" before the release. So I travelled 200 kilometres together with my girlfriend to take this special chance. After a short talk with the moderator, I was able to choose songs that we heard and then talked about it. During the third song I choose - 'Shape Of My Heart' – there was a knock at the door and Sting came into the room and asked me “Andrea, are you surprised?” In the very first moment I was totally stunned! Than we had the possibility to talk about the new album, they made pictures of us and filmed this all for a clip on their website. I will never forget how kind he was and especially his sence of humour. I feel really blessed, that the fortune has chosen me. This moment I will never forget in lifetime and I will be always grateful for this gift.
