Make my Monday highlight: Rian's emotional surprise for family of Calum Scott fan

Each week Rian and the team go the extra mile to make wishes come true in the Make my Monday segment of the show. One of this year's most emotional moments is testament to the universal healing power of music. Hear the full story in the podcast below. 

Vanessa wrote to The Scenic Drive asking for tickets to the upcoming Calum Scott show on 11 November at Marks Park, and she had a very special reason for wanting these tickets. This year, 11 November marks the first anniversary of Vanessa's husband's passing. It was very sudden and Vanessa and her children have been struggling to come to terms with it.

Vanessa thought the concert was the perfect opportunity to celebrate her husband's life, as Calum Scott was also his most favourite artist.  It is as if Vanessa's beloved husband is sending her a sign from the universe. 

Vanessa was overcome with emotion when Rian told her that not only would she and her whole family be getting tickets, but she and her daughter would also get the incredible opportunity to meet and talk to Scott himself. They will have the chance to tell him just how much he means to the family. 

By helping with this small act of kindness, Rian is helping Vanessa and her family forward on the path to overcoming grief.
