Jessie J shared the devastating story behind her miscarriage to her audience during a performance in LA.
The two-hour intimate gig took place on Thursday night and was fuelled with emotion, coming just hours after she tragically lost her baby.
Part-way through Jessie's acoustic concert, she decided to sit down and talk through her turbulent story of "the hardest year that I've ever had to get through".
While her guitarist softly played in the background, the singer looked down and began to weave her words through the chords. "I decided to have a baby by myself", she explained. "And then by a miracle it worked, for a little while, and yesterday... yeah. Yesterday was f*cking sh*t.
I wanted to be here tonight because the one thing that I believe in the most, in this whole entire universe [...] is being human and being vulnerable and being real".
She continued. "I've never felt more alone than I have in the past week. But I don't feel alone right now".
A clip of the emotionally-charged performance was shared on TMZ.
The singer also spoke briefly about how her Méniere's Disease - an ear condition she was diagnosed with in 2020 - as well as other health problems had affected her.
"In December last year I lost my hearing [...] and then I lost my voice, which was f*cking awful. Just because I didn't know who I was without singing".
Jessie was flooded with support after announcing her miscarriage. Fellow singers Pixie Lott, Jojo and Melanie Fiona each offered their condolences, as well as Love Island presenter Laura Whitmore.
"Oh babe, I'm sorry. Sending love" Laura said.
"I'm so sorry jessie sending loads of love [sic]", Pixie commented.
