VIDEO: Lily Allen and Chris Martin Perform Acoustic Version of "The Fear" at Charity Concert
On December 19 in London, Chris Martin of Coldplay and Lily Allen came together for a short acoustic performance at the Under 1 Roof benefit concert at the Eventim Apollo in Hammersmith.
Both acts have been on touring hiatus until the charity show; Coldplay hasn't played a major concert in close to a year, while Allen hasn't toured since 2010.
Martin backed Allen on acoustic guitar for her song "The Fear," and the result was wonderfully jazzy with a hint of bossa nova.
The concert was a fundraiser for the charity organization Kids Company, which gives resources, support, and counseling to vulnerable children in inner-city schools in London.
