For many of us, A Walk To Remember, starring Mandy Moore and Shane West, was one of the first romantic movies that made us cry. It's the first movie Mandy Moore ever top-billed, so it's a really special film, not just for fans, but also for Mandy. In the movie, one of its iconic scenes would probably be when Jamie (Mandy's role) sang "Only Hope" while looking dreamy in a blue satin dress.
In a recent Instagram Live with husband Taylor Goldsmith, Mandy did a major throwback and sang the song live again, probably for the first time in sooo many years. As per BuzzFeed, Mandy shares during the live that there's only ever been one time that she performed that song ~live~, and it was during a concert she held here in the Philippines back in 2008. The other time she sang it was to record the song in the studio. Awww, doesn't that make it feel even more special?
Here's the 2020 version of "Only Hope" during Mandy and Taylor's IG Live, posted by Mandy Moore Web - FC on YouTube:
And if you're curious about the only other time she sang it live here in the PH, YouTuber user nenetlim shared her footage from the 2008 concert in Eastwood:
