American singer, Lucy Spraggan has hailed music mentor, Robbie William after doing a live performance with him.
The songwriter who first appeared in the ninth series of The X Factor in 2012 shared a picture of herself with Williams at his concert at the Sandringham royal estate on the weekend.
Spraggan had been the “Millennium” singer’s support act at the event and she got to do some live performances with him. Taking to her social media, she wrote a story of why those moments were important to her.
“I’ve not really told anyone this story, but it really affirms my faith in the universe and makes me feel like, eventually, if you keep going, losses become wins and goodness comes full circle,” she wrote.
“The very day I had to leave The X Factor, it turns out, was the day Robbie Williams had come to individually mentor us contestants.
“That very traumatic day I lost a lot. Later down the line, when I was able to really assess the damage that might have happened to my career, I knew that not only had I lost the opportunity to continue with the show, but I also lost the opportunity to meet someone I had admired sO much growing up, a northern grafter whose music soundtracked my childhood,” she continued.
In 2012, she missed out on a one-on-one experience with Williams on The X Factor, but the singer said she got an even better opportunity to connect with him.
“I supported Robbie Williams at his show,” she continued. “And what an unbelievable experience it was. What a crowd.”
“He is literally the greatest showman,” she added. “Once again, this man has inspired me even more. The universe is back on track. And all is bloody wonderful. I love my life.”
