James Corden might be known for his hilarious comedy and his surprisingly great singing voice, especially during his amazing carpool karaoke segments which are always a huge hit on the Internet for their raw, unfiltered look at many famous celebrities.
But in addition to being side-achingly funny, Corden's also known for his more emotional side, like when he celebrated his first 50 shows and gave a big thank you to everyone who supported him and helped make his late night program so great. He's definitely got a very soft side.
Last night, a suicide bomber set off a homemade bomb in the foyer of an Ariana Grande concert at Britain's Manchester Arena in Manchester, United Kingdom, killing 22 and injuring 59. Among those confirmed dead were two girls, ages 8 and 18. It was a heartbreaking attack that rocked the globe and put many in a state of panic that it could happen to them.
When Corden heard about the Manchester attack during the taping of his show, he decided to record an extra, impromptu segment to pay tribute to the victims of the bombing.
And it was heartfelt and beautiful.
"It shocks me every time we hear this sort of news that attacks like this can happen. But especially when there will be so many children at this concert tonight," Corden said.
Corden went on to predict that Manchester was going to have an empowering reaction to the attack, which it totally did. good for them!
"A more tight-knit group of people you will be hard pressed to find. And if it was even possible, the spirit of the people of Manchester will grow even stronger this evening."
A classy move from a classy guy. What did you think of Jame Corden's Manchester bombing tribute?
