Styles took an unexpected break from singing while on stage Wednesday night telling the crowd, “I’m going to ask a favor from you because I’d like to try and find someone in the audience… So, we’re going to get really quiet and I’m going to see if I can locate this person if you don’t mind helping me.”

The venue, which has a capacity of 26,000 fans fell quiet (for the most part) until Harry was successful in locating his first school teacher Mrs. Vernon.

“There she is,” he said with excitement before dropping to his knees in appreciation. “How are you? I hear you’re retiring,” he said. “I’d just like to thank you for everything in those formative years and, yeah, thank you so much. It means a lot to me that you’re here tonight,” he said.

Educators everywhere were touched by Harry’s kind gesture, and many took to social media to thank the star for shining a light on a profession that doesn’t often get the praise it deserves.
