Emeli Sande has penned a song inspired by the emotions she was feeling after the Manchester bombing.
Speaking at the Radio 1 Big Weekend in Hull, where she performed in front of a screen emblazoned with a heart and the word ‘Manchester’ across it, Emeli explained that she put pen to paper in the days following the attack.
A number of the artists performing at the two-day Big Weekend event paid tribute to the Manchester attack victims, including Saturday (27 May) night’s headliner Katy Perry.
Before performing ‘Part Of Me’, she told the crowd: “I think we are extremely brave. We are all in this together, aren’t we?
“We will still dance and we will still make music. This next one goes out to Manchester.
“It is for all the people who know what it means for music to touch a community.”
