The Reason Usher Missed One Love Manchester Is The Most Precious Thing I've Ever Heard

Honestly, this is so pure.

Celebs including Miley Cyrus, Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, and Coldplay participated in the big day, but a lot of people were wondering one thing: Where was Usher????

He was originally announced on a list of performers for the concert plus he has a close partnership with Scooter Braun, Ariana and Justin's manager, so it seemed like an obvious fit.

People were confused...

Was anyone else wondering what happened to @Usher yesterday at #OneLoveManchester

And sad...

Still really upset that Usher didn't play last night😢💔 #iloveu


And dreamed of what might have been:

ok but if Usher was at One Love last night and sang "Without You", that would've been amazing

It turns out that Usher had a really great reason why he wasn't able to participate. The singer took to Instagram to explain:

Yup, Usher couldn't make it because it was his son's first day at a summer camp for kids living with diabetes and he wanted to be there for him. Is he the sweetest father ever or the sweetest father ever?
