But it all comes to an end, and next month Willicki will go on a solo tour for the last time before ending her 65-year career.
Her ability to step onto the stage once again might be a relief to Lolicki, who fell into a black hole when the aura started. “You yourself are the first to know you’re fine, and I’ve felt so good because I haven’t been feeling well lately,” she says candidly.
