Former One Direction member Harry Styles gave a heartfelt tribute to victims of the Manchester arena bombing on Monday night (April 9) during his performance at the very same arena where 23 people were killed following Ariana Grande‘s concert last May. The singer has been performing Grande’s My Everything track “Just A Little Bit Of Your Heart” — which he co-penned — on tour, and made sure to tribute those affected by last year’s tragedy before beginning the song.
“I grew up coming to my first concerts in this room, I love this room,” Styles, a Chesire, England, native, told the crowd. “The next song that we’re going to play for you a few years ago, and I gave it to a singer called Ariana Grande. She sang it a few times, and now we’re going to do our version of it for you — and if you can find some way to join in please do so. I stand with you, Manchester.”
Since kicking off the European leg of his tour in March, Styles has performed a pair of new songs titled “Anna” and “Medicine.” The latter of which has fans speculating to be about Style’s rumored bisexuality, as he sings “the boys and girls are here/ I mess around with him/ and I’m okay with it,” in the song. Styles also covers a couple One Direction tracks during his show, the Made in the A.M. ballad “If I Could Fly” and, of course, the classic “What Makes You Beautiful.”
