British singer Harry Styles has proven his knack for playing Cupid.

Harry took on the role of matchmaker and assisted a Filipino fan in proposing to his girlfriend during the singer's Love On Tour concert stop in the Philippines.

The event, organized by Live Nation Philippines and presented by Smart Live, was held at the Philippine Arena in Bulacan on Tuesday night, March 14, 2023.

Midway through his concert, Harry spotted a fan holding up a placard with her personal request written on it.

The fan, who introduced herself as Michelle, wrote, "My bf says he will propose if you duet with him!!! Make it happen pls!"

Harry, then, asked the Filipino couple: "Jeff, are you ready to get married? Michelle, are you ready? Are you sure? Yes? What do you want to sing Jeff?"

In reply, Jeff picked Harry's 2017 chart-topping hit "Sign of the Times" to perform with the singer before he popped the big question.

Harry instructed Jeff, "We're gonna sing a bit of it now and get the proposal over it and Imma finish it later."

Halfway through the performance, Jeff proposed to his girlfriend, asking her, "Michelle, will you marry me?"

Upon receiving Jeff's marriage proposal, Michelle was speechless, but she conveyed her response by nodding.

Harry proceeded to perform the song and made a slight alteration to one of its lines.

Instead of singing "Just stop your crying, it's a sign of the times, we gotta get away from here," he sang, "Just stop your crying, it's a sign of the times... Michelle's gonna marry Jeff."



While adorned in a glittery outfit, Harry displayed his exceptional charm as he sang his popular tunes, mostly from his 2022 album Harry's House.

He opened the concert with the song "Music for a Sushi Restaurant."

His repertoire also included "Golden," "Adore You, "Keep Driving," and "Daylight."

Following his initial performances, Harry greeted his fans:

"Good evening, people of Manila! And surrounding areas! My name is Harry. It's an absolute pleasure to be here with you tonight.

"Thank you so, so much for having us here in the Philippines.

"It's been five years since I was here. That was a long time. Thank you so, so much for having us back, for bringing us back to play.

"Thank you so, so much for the warm welcome back. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Every single one of you!"

Following that, Harry urged his fans to enjoy themselves throughout his concert.

He said, "Our job tonight is gonna be to try and entertain you. I give you my word that we will do our absolute very best.

"And your job this evening is to have fun as much as you possibly can. Do you understand?

"If you're gonna dance, please feel free to be whoever it is that you've always wanted to be in this room tonight."

Harry's repertoire also included the songs "Woman," "Matilda," "Little Freak," and "Satellite."

The 2023 Grammy Award winner for Album of the Year also treated his fans to a trip down memory lane when he performed his former group One Direction's hit song "What Makes You Beautiful."

He also performed the songs "Cinema," "Treat People With Kindness," "Late Night Talking," and "Watermelon Sugar."

Harry concluded his standard set by performing the song "Love of My Life."


Before leaving the stage, he said, "Maraming salamat, Philippines! Maraming salamat! Thank you so much!"

To conclude his concert, Harry went back on stage for the second time to perform his encore songs, which included "Sign of the Times," "She's Dressed As a Banana," "As It Was," and "Kiwi."
