Katy Perry dedicates

Big Weekend headliner, Katy Perry, dedicated "Part of Me" to the people of Manchester in Hull yesterday (May 27).

Paying a heartfelt tribute, she said:

"I think we are extremely brave. We are all in this together, aren’t we? We will still dance and we will still make music. This next one goes out to Manchester. It is for all the people who know what it means for music to touch a community.”

She then asked the audience to turn to the people standing alongside them and touch them whilst she held hands with her band members in a symbol of unity.

She finished by saying: "This is a part of us they will never take away. Rest in peace Manchester," before playing an acoustic version of the song.
