pThe Parrs Wood High School One Love Manchester performance bought many of the crowd to tears as they performed with Ariana Grande at the benefit concert.
It was an incredibly special and poignant evening, and emotions were already running high. Just two weeks after a bomb was set off at the end of an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, killing 22 innocent men, women and children, the singer returned to the city to stage a huge concert to raise money for all those affected and in memory of those who sadly lost their lives.
Grande, who is only 23-years-old herself, organised for a whole host of the world’s most popular performers to join her onstage for the concert. Everyone from Katy Perry, to Justin Beiber, Coldplay and even Liam Gallagher took part to play a few of their best known songs and share messages of hope and love with the crowd.
However, despite the star-studded celebrity singer line-up who wowed with their performances, it was a small school choir who really stole the show.
The choir, from Parrs Wood High School school in Manchester, gave an emotional and poignant rendition of My Everything by Ariana Grande.
Many of the young students were holding back tears during the moving performance.
Young soloist Natasha-Rose Seth couldn’t hold back her tears when Ariana Grande joined the choir to sing the rest of the song. Overwhelmed by the pop-star’s presence and the poignancy of the moment, many of the school children were left wiping their eyes and comforting each other after the emotional performance. Some news sources report that a few of the children from the choir where at Ariana Grande’s concert a couple of weeks ago when the attack happened.
Natasha-Rose Seth’s father took to Twitter to share his pride at watching his little girl perform, “next to her hero”.
The crowd burst into rapturous applause at the end of the beautiful performance. Also, those watching the Parrs Wood High School One Love Manchester performance from home were quick to share their admiration of the small school choir, and heap praise on the brilliant young singers.
