WATCH: Katy Perry surprising a sick 8-year-old fan is the uplifting video you need to see today


Cape Town - Katy Perry visited a sick fan on Monday in Australia after discovering the child would miss the singer’s concert there to recover from an unplanned brain surgery.

The young fan, named Grace Moore, is eight years old and underwent the surgery last week to remove a 6cm tumour. This meant she could not attend the Adelaide concert of her favourite pop star. 

Her older sister Tiana, 16, then came to the rescue by sharing Grace’s disappointment on Twitter, using the hashtag #HelpGraceMeetKatyPerry.

That heartbreaking tweet was retweeted more than 20 000 times and got the attention of Katy’s team who orchestrated and filmed a surprise visit from the chart-topper who sang her hits Roar, Firework and Chained to the Rhythm to Grace according to The BBC.
