The Song ‘Time to say Goodbye’ by Andrea Bocelli – Brendan’s goosebump moment
“Hi there! My name is Brendan, and I come from Ireland. My goosebump moment brings me back to 2016 when Leicester City won the Premier League title against all odds. And this moment really came together and really gave me my goosebump moment when Andrea Bocelli gave an outstanding performance in the King Power Stadium to help Leicester crown their title in 2016. This season was packed with so many emotions and different scenarios which gave Leicester the opportunity to win the title. Now they were predicted to come last that season, but they overcame all odds and finished first. This was a remarkable season that culminated with Andrea Bocelli’s performance of ‘Nessun Dorma’. Whenever I see it, it does in fact give me goosebumps. So that is my goosebumps moment and every time I see it, I absolutely love it.”
