Keith Urban led a crowd in a powerful rendition of “Love Can Build a Bridge” during a show in Manchester, England, this week.
The performance was in tribute to country legend Naomi Judd of The Judds, who died over the weekend.
The moment happened at Manchester’s 02 Apollo during the European leg of Urban’s The Speed of Now Tour.
Urban led the crowd in a sing-a-long of the Judds’ celebrated ballad, while strumming along on an acoustic guitar. He shared footage of the moment on his social channels, along with a remembrance of the late country music legend.

“Naomi Judd sowed so many important seeds in her precious time here. Here’s one of many,” Keith said. “On the other side of the world in Manchester tonight they were all singing ‘Love Can Build a Bridge.’ Thank you, Naomi. We love you.”
Urban's one of many country artists to pay tribute to Naomi’s legacy in the days since her death, which took place just one day before the Judds were officially inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame.
Naomi Judd died April 30 at 76.
A joint statement from her daughters, Wynonna and Ashley, stated that the cause of death was related to mental illness.
