This particular Firefly is not one of the 10 million which once made Owl City wax lyrical, neither is it the gone-but-not-forgotten Midlands hard rock band. This Firefly is worship leader Debbie Gillingham, a 26 year old Londoner who admits that she "wandered through the wilderness watching her husband deteriorate in his battle with MS."
