Adele took time out from the early stage of her European tour to pay a surprise visit to a terminally ill young fan.
The British pop superstar stopped by the Belfast, Northern Ireland home of 12-year-old Rebecca Gibney, who is blind and suffers from cerebral palsy and epilepsy though listens to Adele’s music from morning until bedtime.
Rebecca’s mother Tracy had launched a social media campaign last year urging the “Hello” singer to stop by. “I can’t believe it, I’m just over the moon,” the Belfast Telegraph quotes Rebecca as saying following Adele’s visit. “My daughter got to meet the person that she loved and that’s what I’ll always take with me for the rest of my life. Adele played with her hair, and held her hand and asked her all about Frozen. She was really lovely.”
I am so blessed and thankful that Adele came to my home today???? pic.twitter.com/BfY2SDDVwF
