Video Of Pharrell & Miley Cyrus’ "Happy" Collaboration At One Love Manchester Will Instantly Boost Your Spirits
Some of music's biggest stars gathered together in Manchester, England, to pay tribute to those affected by the terrorist attack at an Ariana Grande concert on May 22. Pharrell and Miley Cyrus sang "Happy" together at Grande's One Love Manchester tribute concert on Sunday at Old Tafford. Before the uplifting duet commenced, Pharrell Williams had taken the stage to sing his hit "Get Lucky," a 2013 collaboration with Daft Punk, and when the song concluded, he addressed the crowd with sweet words about Manchester's strength in the aftermath of the devastating event.
After bowing to the crowd, he told them,
"I'm bowing, because despite all the things going on in this place, I don't feel or smell or hear or see any fear in this building. All we feel here is love, resilience, and positivity."
Then, Pharrell introduced the song and Cyrus, who totally rocked on stage to his ubiquitous 2013 smash hit song. Pharrell even changed one of the lyrics to fit the occasion. He swapped original line, "Well, I should probably warn ya, I'll be just fine" to "Well, I should probably warn ya, Manchester will be just fine." Cyrus sang in response, "That's right! Yeah."
Of course, this wasn't the first time these two mega artists have collaborated on a song — Cyrus was featured in Pharrell's 2014 song "Come Get It Bae."
After the performance, Cyrus told the crowd, "I'd like to wrap my arms around all of you. Thank you for having us....For me, the most important responsibly on this entire planet is to take care of one another." Then, she stayed on stage to sing her new song "Inspired."
In addition to Cyrus and Pharrell, the One Love Manchester concert has brought together artists such as Robbie Williams, Niall Horan, Little Mix, Black Eyed Peas, and Katy Perry — as well as Grande herself — for uplifting performances that will touch your heart.
