Pink stopped her Brisbane show to offer a heartwarming hug to a young teenage girl, who was grieving the loss of her mother.

Pink called out for Leah Murphy, 14, after the crowd at the Brisbane Entertainment Centre helped pass her sign to the singer which read “My name is Leah – I’m 14 years old. I lost my beautiful Mum last month. I would LOVE a hug … Please!”

“Pink read our sign and straight away said where’s Leah?” Leah told The Courier-Mail.

“She came down the stairs and gave me a big, long hug.”

“She told me that I looked pretty. She said ‘oh don’t cry’. She said that everything was going to be OK. Then she signed my arm and we took a selfie.”

“It meant everything. It was a dream come true.”

Leah’s mother Debbie had bought tickets to Pink’s Sydney show and had planned to go with a friend but when she passed away in June, Leah decided to go in her place.

“We couldn’t believe it worked,” Leah’s aunt Katrina Donkin said.

“She hugged her so tight Leah cried. It was so beautiful and so meaningful.”

“We think her mum sent her a hug from heaven.”

  • A very touching article. I’m glad it was successful for everybody involved in making Leah’s dream come true.


  • Awww that’s beautiful. So many artists would have just ignored it and continued on. It’s amazing that Pink takes the time to engage with her fans.


  • PINK is truly an amazing, genuine, caring and beautiful soul. She will have brought some light into this girl’s life at a time when she so desperately needed something.


  • I LOVE Pink, she’s such a beautiful soul. I would have been in tears if I were in the audience. I was in tears reading this. Bless you Pink and Bless you Leah.


  • just shows what a top woman P!nk is – how amazing she is, how kind and generous and loving to her fans. I agree definitely a hug from Leah’s mum via P!nk


  • So lovely of pink to do that! Although I find it a bit odd that’s she took a sign to a concert saying that her mum has died.


  • Glad Pink picked up on the sign. Great action from Leah’s aunty to chear her up !


  • I can see how this would be very special for the youngster.


  • Pink really has a pretty soul! :-)


  • Pink really goes that extra little bit for the fans. Glad she is well enough to keep performing.
