“We’re all praying tonight for the peace and the safety of the people in Ukraine,” the former Fifth Harmony member said before surprising the crowd by welcoming Sheeran to the stage, adding, “This is such a full-circle moment for me…But, like, literally I cried the first time I met him, I’m like such a huge fan of his.”
After that, the duo jumped into the song – which has thus far peaked at No. 23 on the Hot 100 – with Cabello singing, “You said you hated the ocean but you’re surfing now/ I said I love you for life, but I just sold our house/ We were kids at the start, I guess we’re grown-ups now/ Couldn’t ever imagine even having doubts/ But not everything works out,” in blue outfits, back up dancers flooded the stage as Sheeran played his acoustic guitar.
The “Shivers” singer later performed a solo set during the benefit concert. Other acts on the bill for Birmingham, UK-based benefit concert included Snow Patrol, Anne-Marie, Nile Rodgers with Chic, Emeli Sandé, Tom Odell, Paloma Faith, Eurovision winner Jamala and more.
Cabello has previewed two more tracks from her upcoming third solo album Familia today. It will be released on April 8 via Epic Records.
Currently, Sheeran is promoting his 2021 album, which has remixes of “The Joker and the Queen” with Taylor Swift and the lead single “Bad Habits” with Bring Me the Horizon.
