HARRIS, Mich. (WZMQ) – October 6 and 7, the man known as “America’s top psychic medium” is bringing his unique show to the Island Resort & Casino.
Matt Fraser says the ability to see and hear the dead is a trait he inherited from his mother and grandmother. While he is now famous for it, he says it was a well-kept family secret for decades.
“Back in the 50s, 60s, and 70s, you could not talk about being psychic, sensing or feeling your loved ones, or even speaking to the dead,” he said. “My mom and my grandmother only told a few close friends and family members about their gift, and that was it.”
When Fraser realized he could communicate with the dead at the age of 3 or 4, he was “petrified.”
“For me, it was living that movie, The Sixth Sense,” he said. “I did everything that I could to just push this away, to make the voices stop, to just be able to live a normal life.”
Despite his efforts, Fraser says he was always able to connect with people on a deeper level.
“I could feel people’s energy,” said Fraser. “I could feel their emotions. I could feel what they were going through.”
Feeling called to help people, he began his career as an EMT at the World Trade Center in Boston, Massachusetts. One day, he decided to visit a medium.
“It changed my life,” Fraser said. “At that moment, I realized, ‘Oh my god, I can do this too, and I can use this to help people in a different way.'”
Fraser started out small, reading for close friends and family. However, word traveled quickly.
“I was asked to be on Fox News, CBS Radio, NBC News,” Fraser recalled. “Next thing you know, I’m getting a call from E! Entertainment and they’re saying, ‘Matt, we want to do a television show about you and your life and your family.'”
Now, Fraser tours the world, sharing his ability with believers and skeptics alike.
“I always find it’s the skeptics that get the messages,” he said. “I always love that because souls do such an amazing job of coming through and showing us, ‘I’m really here. I’m with you.’ I think that’s what the skeptics need to hear.”
Fraser describes his shows as “a family reunion with heaven.”
“So many times we lose a loved one and we’re left with questions,” he said. “Did they pass peacefully? Are they watching over me on the other side? What I love is to be able to see people leave feeling like they finally have answers.”
It is often an emotional experience.
“Loved ones pass in really tragic ways, but what’s so beautiful when you connect with the other side and you talk to someone, you realize that the last moments of a person’s life are not as important as the memories you shared with them before their passing,” said Fraser.
Fraser says every soul has a story to tell. He never knows who he might hear speaking to him in the crowd.
“The moment that I look out onto the audience, the soul starts to take over,” he said. “One minute I might be talking to somebody in the front row who had lost their mom, the next thing you know, being way in the make with someone who had lost their sister or their brother. It doesn’t matter where you sit; it just matters that you’re there.”
At each show, Fraser’s mission is to provide a sense of hope, healing, and comfort to those in attendance.
“I want people to know when they leave an event, that they can still communicate with their loved ones on the other side,” he said. “When you say, ‘I really wish my dad was here, ‘I really wish my grandma was here,’ at that moment, you just sent a message to your loved one. And if you listen closely, you can actually hear a message yourself.”
There are still limited seats available for Matt Fraser’s performance at the Island Resort & Casino on October 7 at 8:00 p.m. Eastern Time. Click here to purchase tickets.
