Show Notes

Episode 10 of The Music Man Project Podcast, presented by founder and CEO of The Music Man Project charity, David Stanley. 

In this special episode we talk to the famous Music Man Project patron, Noah Wall, and his inspirational mum Shelly. 

Three months into her pregnancy Shelly discovered that baby Noah had a catalogue of health problems, including spina bifida, rare chromosome abnormalities and hydrocephalus - fluid on the brain. His condition was so serious that doctors warned Shelly and husband Rob that he would not survive. The family prepared for the worse and arranged his funeral. 

Noah survived but was born with just 2% of his brain. His progress from then to the present day continues to astound the medical profession the world over. 

Noah became a patron of the Music Man Project in 2015, and performed on stage with us at the London Palladium in two memorable concerts. Noah was a guest of honour at The Music Man Project Royal Albert Hall debut and watched the first half of the performance in a box with celebrity Joe Swash, before joining us for the Last Night of the Proms finale. 

David talks to Noah and his mum about their inspirational story in a frank and moving interview.
