It can be nerve-wracking for anyone to perform in front of a room full of strangers, let alone a child. Now throw the Queen of England and Prime Minister into the crowd, and you’ve got yourself a potential meltdown.
A few years back, the Poppy Girls were asked to perform on stage during a major event that takes place in England. Every year, the Festival of Remembrance pays tribute to the nation’s armed forces and victims of war.
Needless to say, the singing group’s five young ladies were equally nervous to perform as they were excited.
Each of the Poppy Girls has at least one parent in the armed forces, so their appearance was a fitting. In the video below, they sing their beautiful single “The Call (No Need To Say Goodbye),” a song they wrote to help raise money for military families. With the Queen watching in the audience, the girls were well aware this was a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
However, the youngest member of the group, 10-year-old Megan Adams, was heartbroken that her own personal hero couldn’t be there to watch. Her father, Royal Navy Lieutenant Commander Billy Adams, was serving overseas.
But after the girls are finished their song, the event’s host announces he has something very special for Megan — then unveils a surprise that made this video go massively viral with tens of millions of YouTube views.
