"So proud to sing All We Need Is Love at the Commonwealth Games Closing Ceremony - a song I wrote about celebrating love in all its forms and about accepting of our differences and coming together no matter who you are or where you are from, because we are always stronger when we stick together," she wrote.

"I'm even prouder that in my video for this song I featured a young gay couple - which was also brought to the world stage for this performance!"

The Australian singer went on to explain how grateful she was to perform alongside other successful names in the music biz.
