The gig comes after Anne-Marie credited her with therapy earlier this week to help her normalize her “extreme” thoughts and feelings.
The 2002 hitmaker recently revealed that she was seeking therapy during lockdown after realizing she was unhappy and struggling with confidence issues and the stress of being in the spotlight.
During an appearance on ITV’s Lorraine on Monday, she explained that she always struggled with how extreme she thought her thoughts were before speaking to a therapist and finding that how she felt was ‘normal’.

Her sessions inspired her to write her new album, aptly named Therapy, and Anne-Marie revealed that by seeking help she was able to understand the inner voice in her head.
She told host Ranvir Singh, “I’ve always thought my thoughts are very extreme and before they come out of my mouth it’s the worst I can say.”
Anne-Marie admitted that she struggled to express how she felt, and she credited her therapy sessions with helping her realize that her thoughts weren’t as bad as she first thought.
Hurrah! She just released her new 12-track album Therapy, packed with even more catchy hits

“And once I talk to my therapist…it’s like it’s normal how I feel,” the singer said.
‘As soon [your thoughts] comes out of your mouth, it becomes normal, I think.’
She added: “For most people, music has been there for them at some point in their lives. To write [music] is very therapeutic for me.
‘By going into therapy with a therapist, I was able to write music with a different mindset.’
Anne-Marie also recalled having suffered from panic attacks and Ed Sheeran was there to check on her.

She described the singer as “one of the best people” to have as a friend when she revealed: “I recently had a panic attack and I emailed him. He said, ‘Are you all right? Do you want me to call?’ He is really incredible.
“He’s one of the best people to have as a friend in this industry.”
Anne-Marie’s TV appearance comes after she recently revealed that she nearly gave up music after feeling so “unhappy.”
So much so, that she sat down with her manager and told her she wanted to give up her career as a singer.
Admitting it was a terrible moment, The Voice coach told The Sun that she was constantly crying: “I had no energy and no love for myself or anyone else.
‘I blame everything on music. Music was my life, so I couldn’t separate the misfortune in my life from that.’
She confessed that she also felt guilty for making large amounts of money from her music career when there were other people who didn’t, and her biggest struggle was the pressure that comes with working in the industry.
Lockdown helped give the star the space and clarity she needed to continue with music, with Anne-Marie turning to therapy to boost her creativity when it came to rewriting songs.
Anne-Marie spoke candidly about Metro’s Guilty Pleasures, saying she felt like an “asshole” for feeling unhappy living a glamorous life in the spotlight.
She shared the concerns she had about how people “affected everything” and she always “felt like everyone hated me.”
“The stress of that really heightened everything,” she admitted.
As a result, she claims that she would “overcompensate” and try to be “really nice” to people in order to make a good impression.

‘I I couldn’t bear the thought of anyone having anything bad to say about me, which is quite a bad space to be in this industry.”
Anne-Marie has finally gathered the courage to talk to a therapist and has now titled her latest studio album Therapy, as it was inspired by the sessions she had last year.
It is a follow-up to her debut album, Speak Your Mind, released in 2018, and features collaborations with a slew of stars, including Little Mix, Niall Horan, KSI and Rudimental.
