Such a beautiful, human moment ❤
Lewis Capaldi's fans held him up during his Glastonbury Festival this weekend when he found himself struggling through his set.
He tried to push through despite his condition taking over, but he had to stop singing and festival goers were with him note for note.
The crowd coming together with Lewis Capaldi to lift him up as he was struggling is honestly beautiful. I hope he gets a good rest and comes back when he feels ready. He’s a good guy. pic.twitter.com/BpxIYKYVuv

Following up from this moment, the Scottish singer repeatedly apologised to the audience and thanked them for their support.
"I really apologize. You've all come out and my voice is really packing in," he said. "We're gonna play two more songs if that's cool, even if I can't hit all the notes."
This emotional performance comes in the midst of Lewis's public health struggles. A Netflix documentary was released back in April following his journey to stardom and his battle with Tourette's syndrome. He's also very open about dealing with other mental health issues like anxiety.
Earlier this month, he had to cancel all his gigs in the 3 weeks leading up to Glastonbury as he was in some bad need of rest and repair.
"The last few months have been full-on both mentally and physically," he wrote. "I haven't been home properly since Christmas, and at the moment I am struggling to get to grips with it all. I need to take a moment to rest and recover, to be at my best and ready for Glastonbury, and all of the other incredible shows coming up so that I'm able to continue doing what I love for a long time to come."
So we're glad to hear he is taking some serious time off to give himself to rest after a gigantic gig like Glastonbury!
After his performance on Saturday, Lewis announced that he will be taking more time off to address his health.
"I feel like I'll be taking another wee break over the next couple of weeks," he said. "So you probably won't see much of me for the rest of the year, maybe even. But when I do come back and when I do see you, I hope you're still up for watching us."
You know we will Lewis!
