AceShowbiz - Pink halted a show in Brisbane, Australia on Monday, August 20 to hug a teenage fan.

The pop star was in the middle of her set when she spotted a sign held up by a 14 year old who recently lost her mother.

It read: "My name is Leah - I'm 14 years old. I lost my beautiful Mum last month. I would LOVE a hug... Please!"

The Trouble singer immediately stopped the show and headed for the crowd to get close to Leah Murphy.

The fan revealed her mum, Debbie, was a Pink devotee, who had planned to attend the singer’s concert in Sydney but passed away before she got the chance. Leah had hoped to use her mother's ticket, but the show was postponed after Pink fell ill last month.

Murphy's aunt, Katrina Donkin, bought her a ticket for the Brisbane concert and before the show she pleaded with fans to help her niece realise her dream of getting a hug from Pink.

"Ok guys Help me out," she captioned a photo of Murphy and her mother. "Leah and I are going to see @pink Monday 20th in Brisbane. Most of you know Leah and Harvey lost their beautiful mum Deb recently. We are planning on dancing for Deb the whole night. If you can share this post as much as you can in the hope that @pink might see it and give Leah a hug. That's all we're hoping for."

"We couldn't believe it worked," Donkin told The Courier-Mail.

Pink made sure there wasn't a dry eye in the house as she returned to the stage after her magical moment with Leah, urging her fans to call their mothers.

"Everyone call your mom," she said. "I don't care if it's two o'clock in the morning and you're stupid drunk, call your mom."
