Ariana Grande’s One Love Manchester Concert on Sunday was an emotional safe haven for the nearly 50,000 fans who were in attendance at Old Trafford cricket ground. The one-night only concert was filled with heavy hearts from fans still recovering from the attacks outside of Grande's concert in Manchester back on May 22.
On a night where Katy Perry, Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, Pharrell, Oasis’ Liam Gallagher, Mac Miller, Marcus Mumford and Robbie Williams all did their best to put a smile back on the faces of the U.K. fans, it was Coldplay’s performance of their tear-jerking power ballad “Fix You,” that was perhaps the emotional climax of the show.
As seen in the video above, Chris Martin gets down on his knees to deliver the well-known lyrics to their 2005 ballad. There’s no way that there was a dry eye in the entire venue when Martin and the audience both went into the lyrics, “When the tears come streaming down your face/When you lose something you can't replace.”
Coldplay’s performance wasn’t the only moment that got fans at the show filled with excitement. Oasis’ Liam Gallagher even came out to join Martin as they both covered his old band’s hit, “Live Forever.”
According to Billboard, the one-night show helped raise over $3 Million for The British Red Cross.
