Teenage cellist, Sheku Kanneh-Mason’s sensational performance at the Royal Wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle – now the Duke and Duchess of Sussex – stunned honored guests at the ceremony and a billion more watching around the world. George Clooney’s wife, Amal, was spellbound and Meghan’s mother, Doria Ragland, welled up when Sheku performed.

What’s more, Sheku has broken new ground by becoming the first classical musician to take over the official Instagram Stories account, followed by 235 million people. He shared videos and photos of his preparations for the big day, as well as intimate behind-the-scenes photos and clips from the event. Sheku follows in the footsteps of other major stars to be featured on the social media platform – from Taylor Swift and Lady Gaga to Liam Payne and Michelle Obama!

Sheku performed three pieces at the Royal Wedding, having been personally invited to play by the bride and groom. The 19-year-old musician took centre stage at St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle, for the all-important signing of the register. Dressed in a black Paul Smith suit with vibrant pink tie, he gave moving performances of Sicilienne by von Paradis, Schubert’s Ave Maria, and Après Un Rêve by Fauré.

Sheku was thrilled to be involved in the occasion:

“It was such an awesome moment – just really incredible to perform for Prince Harry and Meghan at their wedding! The atmosphere was amazing and I’m proud to have played a small part in the celebrations. It’s a day I will remember for the rest of my life.” – Sheku Kanneh-Mason

Sheku’s captivating performance has seen him gain thousands of new fans and garnered critical praise with CNN calling his performance “breathtaking” and Esquire describing Sheku as a “cello rockstar”.

Fans will be able to listen again to Sheku’s emotional performance on The Official Recording of The Royal Wedding, which is out today on all streaming services – a first for a Royal Wedding. It will be released as a physical album on 25th May and will also be made available on vinyl.
