Camila said during the chat: "The show and I were talking about doing a cover, which I don't really do a lot of, I felt like that was the perfect song."

She went on: "Even when I did it in rehearsals, it made me well up, because to me it makes me think of our world and how coming together tonight we all obviously want to do the most that we can to heal what is broken."

Camila performed alongside the likes of Ed Sheeran, Anne-Marie, Snow Patrol, Nile Rodgers & Chic and Paloma Faith for the Concert for Ukraine, among many others.
