Guy Sebastian's ARIAs Win Was Easily the Most Emotional of the Night
After 16 years in the music business and countless chart topping hits, Guy Sebastian finally won the ARIA for 'Song of the Year' last night.
As long as he did have to wait to receive the accolade, it's safe the say the timing perhaps couldn't have been more perfect for Guy. After all, he won the award for a song he wrote as a tribute to someone very dear to his heart. 'Choir' was written in memory of musician Luke Liang, Guy's band member and close friend, who sadly passed away last year.
As humble as ever, Guy began his speech by lightheartedly apologising to Tones and I, who many had expected would take out the honour. From there, he elaborated on the emotional meaning behind 'Choir. "I cry probably 80 per cent of the times I sing this song," he said, "it's about Luke Liang, such a great friend of all of ours, [who] played in our band."
"I love Tones and I, [she] said 'just be a good person'. . .we're all the same, just be a good person, this means the world, I love you," he concluded.
From there, he went on to perform 'Choir' in what we're betting may just have been one of his most heartfelt renditions yet.
