For the first time, Stan Walker speaks with startling honesty about abuse and addiction, hardship and excess, cancer and discrimination, and growing up in a family where love and violence were horribly entwined.From one of the finest singers to emerge from Australia and New Zealand Aotearoa in a generation, Impossible is a story of redemption and the power of forgiveness. It's also a story about courage and hope; about a young Maori boy finding his place and purpose, never forgetting who he is and where he came from.Prologue: I am the mountain -- Black box -- I am a seed, born of greatness -- We lived in those dark places -- Like the movie but without the humour -- My life was stolen from me -- Hurt so bad -- How sweet the sound -- Leap of faith -- Take me as I am -- Young boy I ain't no more -- Help me in my weak times -- Moemoeā -- You shine so bright.
