Ne-Yo is sounding off on the critics after his concert in Manchester on Thursday night, where the singer was forced to cancel a concert midway through due to illness and a shot voice. The R&B singer songwriter tells readers at globalgrind.com:
THIS IS MY LIFE!! Not much else matters to me, honestly. My music, my family and the people that appreciate my music…..the fans. THAT’S ABOUT IT!! I’ve never had to stop a show, never dreamed I’d ever have to. So when I had to walk out on that stage and tell 12,000 of the people responsible for making me who I am that I could not perform for them, it literally broke my heart. I cried harder than I have in a very long time with no shame whatsoever.
