Harry Styles Quiets Crowd To Deliver “Lovely Message” To His 1st-Ever Teacher.

Despite being a massive superstar, Harry Styles hasn’t forgotten the people who helped him get to where he is today.

He proved this in an adorable way during a concert in Manchester, a city near his hometown of Cheshire. The crowd was cheering loudly, as usual, when Styles suddenly asked if they could get quiet for a moment. He then revealed he was on a mission to locate his “first-ever school teacher,” Ann Vernon, who he heard was attending the show.

After scanning the audience for a moment, Styles spotted her! Or so he thought, at least. It turned out to be another one of his teachers, Mrs. Bailey, but she was happy to pass along his sweet message for her.

“How are you?” Styles asked. “I heard you’re retiring. I’d just like to thank you for everything in those formative years … it means a lot to me that you’re here tonight.”

Just as he was about to perform “Canyon Moon,” a song he dedicated to Ann, he jokingly added, “Can you imagine dealing with me when I was 4?”

According to Mrs. Vernon, having Styles in class wasn’t bad at all, actually. In fact, she seemed to only have good things to say about the star who, even back then, loved to perform.

“I taught him when he was four and five and he was adorable,” Ann said. “He was a little bit of a monkey, cheeky, and he had lots of friends so a lot of his personality that you see now was quite evident from an early age.”

“But yeah, in everything he was amazing, all the teachers here are just so proud of him and so excited about this and everything that he’s achieved,” she added. “Thank you, Harry, for that lovely message. I was very touched by it.”
