Anne-Marie tells how she chose her song for Concert for Ukraine
Speaking to Capital’s Siân Welby and Heart’s Dev Griffin backstage at the moment she was invited to perform at the Concert for Ukraine, Anne-Marie said: “I think we all want to help as much as possible and sometimes you feel helpless… but I hope my presence here helps in some way to raise a lot of money.”
The hosts of the evening also asked her why she had chosen the songs she had done for the evening, to which Anne-Marie explained: “It was quite difficult. Most of my songs are about cheating on exes. -boyfriends, which I don’t think would really fit. I have maybe two that I think would be a good fit for this, and one is obviously “beautiful” and I just feel like that even in the video I made – it was about a Syrian refugee who came to the UK – it just feels right to me, so I hope people like it.”
