Anne-Marie shares how she decided on her song for Concert for Ukraine
While speaking to Capital's Siân Welby and Heart's Dev Griffin backstage about when she was asked to perform at Concert for Ukraine, Anne-Marie said: "I think we all want to help as much as possible and sometimes you feel helpless... but hopefully me being here in some way helps raise a lot of money."
The evening's hosts also quizzed her on why she picked the songs she did for the evening, to which Anne-Marie explained: "It was quite hard. Most of my songs are about cheating ex-boyfriends which I thought wouldn't really fit. I've got maybe two I thought would fit this, and one is obviously 'Beautiful' and I just feel like even in the video I did – it was about a Syrian refugee that came over to the UK – it just feels right, so hopefully people will like it."
