Aussie superstar and newest coach of The Voice, Guy Sebastian, put on a pitch perfect performance during the 2019 Logie Awards last night.
The Australian Idol winner performed a medley of some of his greatest hits (although if you ask us, we’d say every song touched by this musical genius is a hit) and it truly was a stellar performance.
Starting with a crowd favourite, ‘Before I Go’, before moving into a spine tingling rendition of ‘Battle Scars’, Guy really gave the crowd in The Star on the Gold Coast, as well as all of us at home, a performance to remember.
But the most incredible part of the performance was when Sebastian began to sing his newest hit, ‘Choir’.
While the song is upbeat and boppy, the song actually has a major emotional connection to the singer, as he wrote it about his dear friend Luke Liang after he passed away suddenly last year.
As Guy began to sing the first few notes of the song, you could instantly hear his emotion. As he went on, you could see him trying to hold back his tears and at one point, you can actually hear him choking up a little bit.
“But your book ran out of pages. Now I wish I never waited to tell you out of all the moments in my life the ones I got to share with you were probably my favourite,” Guy sang while pointing up to the sky.
At the end of the song, as the crowd stood to their feet and cheered him on, Guy looked down and released a deep breath and shaking his head, visibly shocked by how emotional he’d just become.
The moment truly was beautiful! You can watch it for yourself in the video above.
After releasing the song at the end of May, Guy wrote on Instagram about what it meant to him and how he had dedicated it to his friend Luke.
“I wanted to write my dear friend Luke something joyful because he was such a fun guy, I don’t think he would have like to soppy ballad I started to write… so it became Choir,” he said. “Miss you bro.”
“I wrote this as a reminder to not let this crazy world stop us from being there for one another,” he added in another post. “We just don’t know what the people around us are going through, so let’s spread as much love as you can.”
