Given to Fly – Miami 2016

Sometimes is seen a strange spot in the sky
A human being that was given to fly

“In October of 2014, I took my terminally ill sister and her daughters to see Pearl Jam in St. Louis, Mo. I had been in contact with Ten Club to exchange her regular 10c seats to handicapped accessible ones a couple of weeks before the show. Someone must have shared her story with the band, because they came out after the encore break and dedicated “Given to Fly” to Andi. We had no idea it was going to happen, and were completely blown away. She passed away three days after the concert, and we played the version of the song performed at the concert along with the dedication at her funeral. Andi loved music, lyrics, and Pearl Jam; I know she was with me in spirit during the spring tour.”
