10 years bro and it feels like yesterday when ya texted me to say “safe flight pal see ya soon” and that was it. I have missed you every day, your laugh and your wicked sense of humour resonates always. I will continue to miss you and all you were. What you did for so many should never be forgotten. All those people struggling with their sexuality and afraid to come out which you paved the way for. You were a pioneer but that didn’t come without its challenges and you overcame it all to shine and be the human you always wanted to be. I love you my brother and thank you for all you taught me. Tonight I raise a glass for you Bro and listen to all the music you loved because music is the language we can still speak to each other with. God bless you. Rest well my friend. X

COVER SONG BY MIKAELA MOODY - Bandcamp

Mikaela Moody, a long time fan of Stephen decided to record a cover of 'Waiting For You', the b-side to 'I Love The Way You Love Me' as a tribute to Stephen and his incredible voice which she first heard while she was in the hospital back in 1998. Mikaela, with the help of a friend, recorded the song with the aim of asking people to donate to a LGBTQ+ charity of their choice. You can listen to her cover here and/or check out her page to learn more about her.
