  1. I’ve always waited for an opportunity to arise to meet Alexander and watch him perform live, and meeting him for the first time was an amazing experience! Not only do I like him because he has a nice face, but his down-to-earth, humble being touches me. He has great energy, and his sweetness makes me melt. I find my admiration for him not in a crazy-fan-girl way, but I admire him for being a humble human who makes good music, and who makes music that he himself enjoys (as well as his listeners), rather than mainstream music.
    So, Alexander, thank you so very much for coming to London and taking your time to meet your fans. I am looking very forward to meeting you again, and please come back to London as soon as you possibly can. Continue to stay as humble as you are and as extraordinary as you are. Take care, Sara

I would like to thank Olga Bramley for inviting him, Alex for coming, thanks to Tessa for the video recordings and my Polish girls Martyna, Kaja and their mum for great company! I will never forget that day ! I hope to see you again soon 😀 xxx
