Seems like Beyonce has been on tour forever! It’s always her song Irreplaceable that generates a moment. This one is tender and sweet.
During her show in Perth, Australia on Friday, Beyonce sang a special duet with fan Sophie Kotkis who’s just 13 years old. Sophie is legally blind, and suffers from mild cerebral palsy. Beyonce found this special girl in the crowd, kissed her on the cheek and told the audience, “I have a very special young girl here, tell everybody your name, beautiful.” “Sophie!” she replied, with a huge smile.
This special moment was arranged by Sophie’s sister Ellie. Big sis made a video about Sophie and sent it to Beyonce, who’s involved with the children’s charity, Hope For Children.
“She’s never really been able to go to a concert due to logistical reasons, so I made a video about Sophie,” Ellie told Perth News. “Even with everything that she’s been through, she’s been able to do so much. She raised over $1000 for people with multiple sclerosis at the Runamuck (for the MS Society). I put that all in the video and I just said that I think someone as amazing as Sophie deserves to meet someone as amazing as you (Beyonce).”
“She had no idea that she was going to sing with her,” Ellie added. “It was amazing. Beyonce is her favorite. When “Single Ladies” came on, she jumped up and was dancing and everyone was watching her dance. She’s still on cloud nine today.”
