Jessie J shared a very personal story with her fans at her concert in London.

The "Domino" singer, 30, took the stage at the Royal Albert Hall this week to perform for her fans, including Channing Tatum, who was in attendance at the show. Before performing her song "Four Letter Word," Jessie took the time to talk to her audience, opening up about news she received four years ago.

"So four years ago, I was told that I couldn't have children, and it's OK, I'm going to have children, trust me. When the doctor told me, my reaction was, 'Oh hell nooooooo,'" Jessie sang as the audience applauded her.

"And I don't tell you guys for sympathy, I'm one of millions of women, and of men, that have gone through this and will go through this, and it can't become something that defines us," she continued. "But, I wanted to write this song for myself in my moment of pain and of sadness. But, also to give myself joy and give other people something that they can listen to in that moment when it gets really hard."

"So, if you've ever experienced anything with this or have seen somebody else go through it, or have lost a child, then please know you are not alone in your pain," Jessie told the audience before starting the song, which is off her album R.O.S.E., released in May 2018.

Instagram user @luk3ja captured video of Jessie's speech, which you can watch above.

"I pray I get the chance to bloom/I can be a six letter word, but four letter word is you," Jessie sings on the track. "B-A-B-Y/This just changed my life/Can't believe I, can't believe I, can't believe I don't have time."
