  1. I have just found Gary. I am so glad to have done so. What amazes me is that on all of the Take That songs, you hear his voice. A lot of singers in groups you hear them all. But you can hear his voice beautifully. Amazing. Thank you.

  2. I can't don't know how Gary got through this so soon after his daughters passing. That's when I really felt respect for him as an artist. That's true professionalism right there… Love TT.. genuine guys with genuine talent.. ❤️

  3. Whenever I need some inspiration I come back to this video – the event, the song, Gary Barlow's performance during grieving, the fireworks, the crazy guitar noodling at the end, the flames almost touching the guys in white at the start….and over it all the Phoenix rising from the ashes.

  4. I just wrote on another video on the Olympic channel where they show Bocelli singing Because We Believe for the closing ceremonies. Had to be my favorite time for me in the Olympics ceremonies, and 6 years later we got treated to this, which became my second favorite of all time in the ceremonies. Oh and my favorite olympic flame of all time, I don't see how that will ever get topped.
