In her first appearance since being diagnosed with cancer, singer and ACDC lead singer Barbi Benton will return to the stage with a special performance of “I’m Not a Hero.”
A crowd of more than 10,000 fans will cheer Benton on as she delivers a song that recalls the “I am a Hero” song from the movie, “The Hunger Games.”
The singer, whose cancer diagnosis was revealed in November, has been battling the disease for nearly three years.
In an interview with ABC News earlier this year, she said she had been able to do what she wanted, but she didn’t want to feel guilty about it.
“It’s really hard to keep a secret when it’s something that’s been a part of you for a long time,” Benton said.
Benton told ABC News in a recent interview that she doesn’t feel guilty because she “can’t control what happens to me.
It’s just what it is.”
Benton has had a tough time finding a vocal coach and performing as a solo artist since her diagnosis, but now she is doing just that.
She is taking part in the first solo concert in the ACDC’s history.
In an interview this week with NBC News, she recalled the song’s origins.
“It’s an honest song that I wrote, it’s been going for quite a while, and I think it really speaks to people, that it was a moment that I really needed to say something,” Bento said.
“I was in a dark place, and we were all feeling really alone and I had to tell the world, this is who I am.
And that’s why I sang it, so people know that I’m who I really am.”
Bento said that after the diagnosis, she “didn’t feel very happy.”
But she said the experience of singing “I Am a Hero,” with the help of a vocal therapist, helped her “get back to my old self.”
“I am really happy that I can sing it again, I am so happy that people are starting to come out, and the song is so good, it has really changed my life,” she said.
