Jedward Send A Heartfelt Message To Manchester With Linkin Park Cover

Jedward send a beautiful and heartfelt message of love to the people of Manchester with an acoustic cover of the title track of Linkin Park’s new album, ‘One More Light’.

The album, which was released late last month, shot to the top spot on Billboard’s 200 Chart, making it the 6th number one album for the California band.

The song’s already poignant story of life after loss  is rendered all the more emotive and stirring by John Grimes, accompanied only by his acoustic guitar. It’s a fitting tribute to the families and friends of those who lost their lives after Ariana Grande’s concert last week.

Ariana Grande returns to Manchester this Sunday night for a benefit concert, ‘One Love Manchester’, to be held at Old Trafford.  Joining her will be Robbie Williams, Little Mix, Take That, Niall Horan, Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, The Black Eyed Peas, Coldplay, Usher, Pharrell Williams, and Justin Bieber, with other names still to be confirmed. Tickets are sold out, but the concert will be broadcast on BBC One. It is expected the benefit will raise more than £2 million for the Red Cross fund for the victims and their families.
