Writing on her official website, [a][/a] said she was “deeply moved” by the gestures.

She said: “I was deeply moved to hear about the tributes at Glastonbury. Though I’m desperately sad not to have been able to perform at the event, I was so happy to feel that I was, in a small way, still a part of it. My humble thanks to the artists and the crowd. I’m far away but I hope you felt the smile on my face and the joy it brought me. Hope a great time was had by all.”
