Coldplay wins hearts by accepting grieving woman’s song request
During a concert, Coldplay won hearts when a concert-goer asked them to sing a special song in memory of her late husband.
As the British rock band performed Hymn for The Weekend in Tokyo during their Music of The Spheres world tour, Chris Martin noticed a special poster.
A mother and her son held up a sign that read: “Can you play Everglow? ” The crowd roared as the song is not a part of the band’s set list for this tour.
The duo was invited on stage by Chris, who escorted them to the piano. Taking their sign, he read the full message which originally asked: “Can you play Everglow for my husband in heaven?”
In response, the 46-year-old said: “Yes I can, and we will,” making both fans sob as the crowd cheered and applauded.
“They’re nearby and they protect you and they love you,” Chris said before singing, “so I think this is a good choice.” Chris explained that the song is about a person leaving his “human form” and staying with you forever “as a feeling” in your heart.
As well as the heartwarming gesture, the band has received a lot of praise for their visually appealing sets and environmental initiatives.
