I looked out at the audience and there was an “older” gentleman who looked me in the eyes and showed me a thumbs-up. When we ended our set, he came up to me and said “You really must love what you do because I see your passion beaming from you”. I think it must have been one of the nicest things someone has said to me and I confessed that I was considering giving up
Shen and his band got a call late on one Sunday evening from an unknown number in Dubai. To his surprise there was a client who wanted ShenFM to perform at their wedding anniversary that following Thursday!
Shen explained that it takes about 3 days to get a Dubai visa so it was cutting it a bit close. Needless to say the visa was in his inbox the following morning.
