I didn’t understand what music was until Freddie Mercury showed me. Growing up, I saw how others interacted with it, but once I watched a video of Freddie Mercury performing “Bohemian Rhapsody” on stage when I was in college, I was hooked. I would watch that video all day everyday. I soon fell in love with Queen’s other songs and began to learn about different aspects of music. I understood that a song was something you could always have with you, something beautiful you could draw on when you’re down. Freddie Mercury broadened my horizons.
