“You can feel so much emotion through U2’s music because their songs are written about personal experiences. And those songs resonate with people because they can associate with them through events in their own lives.
For me, A while back I was having a hard time, a lot of horrible things happened that put me in the position of being homeless. When your in that situation, sometimes you worry that you can’t do it on your own, and you don’t know where to find help. I spent a lot of time listening to music because it gave me the belief that I could be better than my situation. One day I was listening to ‘Ultra Violet (Light My Way)’ in my headphones, and just by chance someone crossed my path and set me back on the track I was suppose to be on. That person really did light my way! Now, I manage a business and my life continues to get progressively better. So it’s those types of things, life changing moments that make U2 songs resonate with me.”
