Ep: 79 Sean Mills

New Starz Show

Feb 1 2024 • 16 mins

In early December 2023, a relatively unknown Australian artist, Sean Millis, was being touted online as ‘a look-a-like’ to one of Manchester United’s new star players Rasmus Højlund - a player who was yet to score his first goal for the club.

It just so happened that Sean Millis’s most recent song was called ‘Waiting On a Miracle’.

The online Twitter army got behind Sean and the song, Højlund scored, and the rest was history.

As a result, 'Waiting On a Miracle' achieved #1 on the UK Daily Viral Spotify Charts for 11 Days straight and also charted top 10 in 9 other countries. During this period Sean had over 220 million views on his videos across Tiktok and Instagram, and now cannot leave his house without signing autographs for anyone who spends any time at all on TikTok.

All that meaningless stuff aside, Sean’s personal story is remarkable. Sean lives with a rare disease called Hunters Syndrome - for which he receives life-saving hospital treatment every week. He has a dedicated team of nurses at his hospital who have looked after him for years. They love his music and encourage him to go all the way.

Sean is following his dreams as a singer-songwriter and won’t let anything get in the way. Sean’s fast-growing fan base of over 960,000 followers across Tiktok and Instagram love his positive outlook on life whilst he faces daily and weekly challenges that most people could not comprehend.

Sean's message to the world is simple –

"I have faced dark days in hospital as a young person facing a rare disease. I know what it's like to have the feeling that there is no hope. As a result, I have learnt to live every day as though it's my last, and I am now grateful for every opportunity I have to live and love life. I hope I can share my journey of hope with one person at a time, through my songs and my voice."

‘Waiting On a Miracle’ was written by Pam Sheyne (‘Genie in a Bottle’ – Christina Agilera), Aiden Martin and Oscar Bell and produced by rising Australian talent Jude York. Sean’s rich, warm vocal tones take the listener on an uplifting journey of hope. This song will touch even the hardest of hearts.
