British pop star Lily Allen fought back the tears during her appearance at the U.K.'s Glastonbury festival this weekend (28-29Jun08) - taking to the stage just hours after her beloved grandmother passed away.
Allen was booked to make an appearance at the event alongside superproducer Mark Ronson on Sunday (29Jun08) night but her performance was thrown into jeopardy with the news that her elderly relative - mother of Allen's actor father Keith - died on Saturday (28Jun08).
But Allen surprised organisers by keeping her promise to sing at the festival and appeared in an emotional state as she took to the stage.
Before launching into a moving rendition of her hit song Littlest Things, she told the crowd, "My Nana Allen died last night. This is for Nana Allen. I love you."
