The singer belted out her massive hit Firework during the special Celebrating America television broadcast, which was hosted by Hollywood actor Tom Hanks and featured an array of stars including Justin Timberlake and John Legend.

Bloom later took to Instagram to share his pride in his partner, saying the couple’s four-month-old daughter Daisy Dove would watch the special moment when she was bigger.
