This moment for Martin Garrix has been nearly two years in the making. 

Delivering on his role as an appointed UEFA Euro artist, Garrix—alongside U2 icons Bono and The Edge—dropped the studio version of their rallying single "We Are The People" last month.

As the official anthem for one of the world's largest soccer tournaments, "We Are The People" was performed by the trio yesterday during its opening ceremonies, providing a cathartic start to the action. Moments before Italy and Turkey took to the field fans were treated to a virtual performance of the song, which featured the artists performing from the ground level of Rome's striking Olimpico Stadium amid a sea of digitally enhanced lights.
