A seven-year-old Ukrainian girl who went viral while singing Let It Go in a Kiev air raid shelter performed live in Poland.
Melia Anisovych was captured performing the song from the Disney film Frozen while protecting herself from a Russian attack, in a video that has since attracted millions of viewers.
After fleeing, Amelia is now in Poland with her grandmother and siblings Ukraine amid the country’s ongoing war.
She took to the stage on Sunday night to sing Ukraine’s national anthem in front of thousands of people at Atlas Arena in Łódź.

The concert entitled “Together with Ukraine” featured some of the biggest names in Ukraine and Poland in support of Polish Humanitarian Action.
Stars in attendance included Daria Zawialow, Igo, Dagadana, Jerry Heil and Marcin Wyrostek.
Amelia previously told BBC Breakfast she wanted to thank people who “enjoyed my singing”.
She said, “I practice singing every day morning, afternoon and night… It’s always been my dream to sing.”
The video was originally shared online by Marta Smekhova, who was also in the bunker.
She said the heartfelt performance left everyone stunned… “from the first word there was complete silence… everyone heard a song by this girl that just radiated light”.
Actress Idina Menzel – who played Elsa, the character who performs the song in the movie Frozen – saw the video and tweeted, “See you. We really, really see each other.”
