Seeing P!nk at Madison Square Garden in New York is a thrill in itself, but when you add the insanely talented Chris Stapleton to the mix, it’s one for the books.
That’s exactly what P!nk did when she invited Chris on stage at her May 21 show to join her for a beautiful duet of “Love Me Anyway” On a side note, Chris and his wife Morgane just welcomed their 5th child earlier this month.
P!nk took to Instagram after the show to share the epic moment that had the audience cheering throughout.
“Tonight. Madison Square Garden. One of my absolute favorite songwriters, favorite voice, and person. Chris Stapleton. What an absolute honor to share a stage with you my friend. ‘Love me Anyway,’” she wrote in the post alongside a concert shot of herself and Chris on stage.
Chris’s wife commented on Pink’s post saying, “I love y’all! I wish I had heard this moment!”
The two powerhouse vocalists went back and forth on lyrics such as, ” “Could you / Could you still love me? / Could you / Become the pieces of me? / Could you / Could you still love me? / Could you love me anyway? / Could you / And catch me when I fall. / Could you / And rise above it all. / Could you / And hold me when it hurts. / I can’t stay in the world, could you?”
The stunning tune was written by Pink along with co-writers of “The House That Built Me, ”Allen Shamblin and Tom Douglas and is featured on P!nk’s newest album, Hurts 2B Human.
To close the show, the duo embraced in a hug and Chris tipped his hat and gave a wave to the crowd. As Chris exited the stage, Pink could be heard saying, “I love you Chris Stapleton. Thank you so much.”
The feeling is mutual.
