Up until fairly recently, Alfie has lived a very difficult life, going from a great childhood to a very difficult young adult life.
If you want to know the whole story, basically just read his autobiography. But anyway.
Alfie has totally changed my life. Meeting him was one of the greatest days of my life. He is one of the nicest people I have ever met, and was so kind to me. And took the time to reply personally to my letter.
I really just can’t describe how much he means to me. Don’t like his Valjean? That’s fine - he’s not for everyone. But if you don’t like his personality there’s gotta be something wrong with you because this man is an angel.
I don’t have the easiest home life either, which Alfie has helped me so much with through his music and personality. Both my parents have been seriously ill over the last few years, and one of them still is, and whenever I need a break from everything - from stress from home, school, exams, whatever - I just listen to Alfie and I feel better. I went through some tough shit - some of it I never want to talk about again and was feeling the worst I have ever felt. Alfie totally changed that.
So thank you Alfie.
You’re the best.
