Bevlee Jones died in March (16) and her 13-year-old son, Ieuan, reached out to the Scot, asking if he could sing at his mother's funeral.

Nutini had to say no because he was on tour, but he has agreed to play a special gig in Jones' memory, with proceeds going towards a trust fund for Ieuan.

"When I heard of Ieuan's plea, it was with regret that I couldn't attend his mother's funeral and do what he asked of me," Paulo says. "I wanted to help him in any way that I could and I feel like a concert in aid of Ieuan himself and in memory of his dear mother was the right way to do so."

Nutini will perform in Bevlee's native Newport on 20 July (16).
