Tamia Hill- Passion Like Fire Tour
This post goes out to all, especially the musically influenced followers. I had the pleasure of meeting one of my all-time favorite childhood R&B singers. The beautiful and talented, Tamia. Meeting her was such a profound and inspiring experience! This particular meet and greet was very special to me because not only did I grow up listening to her music but I can also relate to her story..
Tamia was also diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in 2003 at the age of 28 and has been an advocate for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society (Read her story here). I arrived at the House of Blues inside the Mandalay Bay, waiting with anticipation. There were issues with call & meet-and-greet time but glad to say it all worked out in the end. This was a big deal for me.. I don’t really go out as much as I used to so i’m proud to say.. I DID IT !! Along with the VIP Package included general standing. I wasn’t sure if I was able to stand through the concert before my legs start tingling. Instead, I was able to sit balcony seats. It isn’t like being up close but I was comfortable & just happy to be able to attend. The opportunity to even meet her hits so close to home.. Wow, I met Tamia my first year of being diagnosed with MS! I wonder what other inspiring experiences are in store for my MS journey. We chatted about our MS and the best advice she gave me was to…” Always listen to your body.” Best piece of advice that I will keep with me and share with other MS patients & society in general for years to come. I’m still so star-struck! :)
