Kane Brown brought a powerful message of unity to the 55th ACM Awards with a performance of his single “Worldwide Beautiful” live from the Grand Ole Opry House on Wednesday, September 16th.

“I am so excited to play the ACMs and share such a powerful message to the community that we all need to come together as one. And, be a family and everybody love everybody,” Brown explained ahead of his ACM Awards performance. “That’s what Worldwide Beautiful is and what it means and I cannot wait to play it for you guys.”

The performance came with a choir from the balcony seated area of the Opry House, their voices blending perfectly together during the set.

“Worldwide Beautiful” is a track co-written by Brown alongside Ryan Hurd, Shy Carter and Jordan Schmidt, produced by Dann Huff. The song appears on his latest EP, Mixtape Vol. 1. All proceeds from the song benefit The Boys And Girls Clubs of America.

The 55th Academy of Country Music Awards also featured performances from Jimmie Allen, Kelsea Ballerini, Gabby Barrett, Carrie Underwood, Luke Bryan, Eric Church, Luke Combs, Dan + Shay, Florida Georgia Line, Riley Green, Mickey Guyton, Miranda Lambert, Tim McGraw, Maren Morris, Old Dominion, Thomas Rhett featuring Jon Pardi, Blake Shelton with Gwen Stefani, Taylor Swift, Tenille Townes, Morgan Wallen and Trisha Yearwood.
