Growing up there were certain movies that defined our childhoods. From Danny DeVito’s take on the classic that is Matilda all the way to the iconic Pulp Fiction, it can be hard to choose a favorite.

But one stand-out classic for every single person has to be A Walk To Remember. It took the classic chick-flick narrative and kept it entertaining enough to want to watch it over and over. And Mandy Moore, the actress that plays Jamie in the film, decided she would treat us all while we’re in isolation with an updated rendition of “Only Hope.”

A Walk To Remember graced our screens back in 2002.

The happy-go-lucky chick-flick really brought a little something to our young lives.

Of course, the overly idealistic portrayal of love will now make a lot of us sick to our stomachs, but back in the day, it gave us some sort of hope, right?

If that isn’t enough to add this movie into your top 10 (or 100), then you should probably get your eyes checked out.

Some may call it cringe-worthy, but we loved it. Remember when Jamie (played by Mandy Moore) told Landon (Shane West) not to fall in love with him and he basically scoffed at the idea?

Spoiler alert: Because he did in fact, fall in love with her.

Feelings are a big no-no when you get older, but at the time, the back and forth was kind of cute.

Every girl was hoping to get a solid, black butterfly on their shoulder at the hands of the bad boy they were crushing on. Thank God we didn’t because there’s a reason why it’s known as a tramp-stamp… Yikes.

She played the character so well and almost twenty years later, she is back on the scene, reigniting our love for A Walk To Remember.

And her glossy hair, but mainly her voice. The storyline saw her give us an iconic performance of “Only Hope.”

Given the current pandemic and all, but if it meant getting this treat from Mandy, I guess we can be slightly less sad about it.

Sat alongside her husband, who played the guitar, Mandy gave us a concert we weren’t going to forget.

“This is a song I’ve sung one time almost twenty years ago. I think I’ve sung it once in concert in the Philippines not that long after [and] I sang it once to record it,” she says.

She then gave us the most beautiful version of the song we have ever heard. We all literally got goosebumps.

It was a natural reaction.

It’s hard not to openly sob while watching the performance…

Same girl, same.

Can we join?

Does anyone need a tissue, because I’ve got some spare just in case.

Remember when the cast of Harry Potter reunited and we totally missed it? Well, now you can re-live the moment…
