BBC Breakfast viewers were touched by the heartfelt tears of musician Victoria Canal as she broke down on the programme.

During her interview, the 25-yea-old pianist shared details about her forthcoming album and her remarkable moment joining Coldplay on the legendary Pyramid stage at Glastonbury, a personal invitation from frontman Chris Martin himself.

Victoria recounted to presenters Naga Munchetty and Charlie Stayt how she and Chris had forged an unexpected bond after her music gained viral attention online, leading to their chance meeting. Ever since that encounter, the pair have kept in touch.

To her amazement, Chris honoured his word and asked her to perform alongside him and his renowned band Coldplay, who were headlining the prestigious event. "It was a dream come true," she expressed to the BBC Breakfast duo.

Chris Martin also extended an invitation to Hollywood star Michael J. Fox to join them on guitar during a rendition of Coldplay's emotional anthem 'Fix You', reports the Mirror.

Revealing details to Naga and Charlie, Victoria mentioned that the esteemed actor imparted some sage advice following an incident that left her shaken.

She confided in Michael backstage about her distress over a headline that had reduced her identity to "one armed girl", ignoring her musical prowess. The up-and-coming artist has lived without her right forearm due to amniotic band syndrome, yet has not let this define her professional journey.

Michael, 63, diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease at just 29, offered her some timely advice: ignore the tabloid noise and concentrate on your talent. Speaking with Naga and Charlie, she recalled how his words were exactly what she needed to hear.

Despite his extensive experience in conducting interviews, host Charlie couldn't help but notice the emotional undercurrents in Victoria's voice. It was clear that her experiences were still affecting her deeply.

Charlie questioned her directly, sensing the unresolved emotions: "I get the impression Victoria, that the emotions are still quite raw, when you're talking about the moments you've just had. You're pretty young so the emotions are probably still pretty raw? ".

Victoria laughed, acknowledging Charlie's perceptiveness, confirming: "Yeah, they are pretty raw. I called my parents the day of the show, I literally have been dreaming about this my whole life."

She continued, expressing deep gratitude: "I couldn't be more honoured to share the stage with my songwriting hero and meet people who have tirelessly pursued their dreams."

Reflecting on her lifelong passion and determination, Victoria said: "Since I was a little girl I just knew that I wanted to do this and always had the conviction to never ever give up," as she wiped away tears, she added: "So for my dreams to come true, it's just very special."

Affirming her impact, Charlie reassured her: "It is special and I can tell you now, that you in turn will be inspiring a lot of people."
