A month on from losing her mother, 14-year-old Leah attended Pink’s Brisbane concert on Tuesday night in her mum’s place.
Determined to get a hug from Pink herself, Leah and her family brought a number of signs to the show which said “My name is Leah – I’m 14 years old. I lost my beautiful Mum last month. I would LOVE a hug… Please!”.
Fellow concertgoers were just as determined to get Pink’s attention. Fans around Leah and her family grabbed the signs and helped wave them at Pink – and it certainly worked.
So much so that Pink halted her entire concert to go give Leah a hug.
“Where’s Leah?” Pink called out on stage, before stepping down into the crowd to hug the teenager.
"She came down the stairs and gave me a big, long hug," Leah told The Courier Mail.
"She told me that I looked pretty. She said 'oh don't cry'. She said that everything was going to be okay. Then she signed my arm and we took a selfie,
"It meant everything. It was a dream come true."
Leah decided to attend Pink's concert in honour of her mother.
Leah's mother was a big fan of Pink's music and had initially bought tickets to get see Pink perform in Sydney with a friend.
When Pink's Sydney concert was cancelled due to illness, just minutes before Leah arrived at the venue, Leah's aunt Katrina managed to grab tickets to the star's Brisbane show instead.
"She [Pink] hugged her so tight Leah cried. It was so beautiful and so meaningful," Katrina told The Courier Mail.
Pink has nine more stops on her Australian leg of the Beautiful Trauma tour.
