Not long after attending hip-hop prodigy Kendrick Lamar's sold-out gig at the Hammersmith Apollo venue in London on Sunday (Jan. 20) night, Florence Welch was spotted riding the London Underground subway home -- and busting out an impromptu a cappella version of her hit Florence + the Machine single 'You've Got The Love' for appreciative fans.

After the release of Baz Luhrmann‘s big-screen adaptation of ‘The Great Gatsby’ was pushed back a few months, a new promo was unveiled in the interim. The clip pairs scenes from the upcoming flick with Florence + the Machine’s ‘Bedroom Hymns,’ a tune that’s well-suited for the dramatic plot. The film stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire and Carey Mulligan and is scheduled to hit theaters next May.
The Rolling Stones have a history of inviting eclectic acts to support them on the road. In recent years, everyone from Sugar Ray to Sheryl Crow has opened for the Biggest Band on Earth, and tomorrow night (Nov. 29), that list will reportedly grow to include Florence Welch of Florence + the Machine.
It takes some serious chutzpah to get up on a stage and sing for a nation of strangers -- not to mention a panel of industry judges, er, "mentors" -- and if you're going to do it, you might as well pick a song that's going to make everyone remember you, for better or for worse. Witness Caitlin Michele, who made the gutsy decision to perform Florence + the Machine's 'Cosmic Love' during her blind audition on last night's (Oct. 1) episode of 'The Voice.'
