Belfast: Oscar-winning singer Adele stopped to say “hello” to a 12-year-old ailing fan here in the midst of her preparations for a gig.
The superstar was here on Tuesday for a gig when she decided to drop in on Rebecca Gibney after her mother Tracy launched a campaign last year, reports mirror.co.uk.
Tracy, from Short Strand, had started a campaign last year in a bid to help her daughter meet her idol Adele.
“I am in shock, I got my baby’s dream to come true. She was so nice, she could not have been nicer.
“Adele sat beside her and she was talking to me and my other kid, she was so nice for wee Rebecca. I cannot put it into words what it means,” the girl’s mother told Belfast Live.
“Adele was in my house, sitting on my hospital bed, Adele was in the Short Strand. It is unbelievable her dream has come true. Adele was just so nice,” she added.
Rebecca is too ill to go to the concert, but Adele had offered Tracy and family tickets for the gig at the SSE Arena which was held on Tuesday.
