Florence Welch's Dad Seriously Injured in Bike Accident


Florence Welch, Florence and the Machine


Nick Welch cracked his spine and skull in bicycle smash just days before Florence was due to perform at Oscars.

British singer Florence Welch was nursing a tragic secret as she sang at the Academy Awards on Sunday, February 27 - her father was seriously injured in a bicycle smash just days before the glamorous event.

The star took to the stage with A.R. Rahman to perform "If I Rise", which was tipped for a Best Song Oscar but lost out to Randy Newman's "Toy Story 3" tune "We Belong Together". However, Florence's trip to Los Angeles was fleeting - she reportedly headed straight back to Britain to be at her father Nick's hospital bedside after he cracked his spine and skull in a bike accident last week.

Nick Welch was due to undergo surgery on Monday, February 28, and told London's Evening Standard, "I'm not feeling too bad but I've been lucky. I don't know where I was when it happened."
