I’m not a big Beyoncé fan, but I like her a lot more than a casual music fan. I even have her first CD and her Live at Wembley CD/DVD. Recently, the Houston native has showcased her Southern Hospitality at the VMAs, but what she did during a tour stop in Australia is much more powerful. Beyoncé closes her shows with her hit “Halo,” which has recently been used to not only acknowledge a personal hero as the song always has, but Michael Jackson.
At her September 18th stop at Sydney’s Acer Arena, Beyoncé dedicated “Halo” to Chelsea, a young girl battling leukemia. The superstar hugged Chelsea as she sang “I got my angel now,” and looked the girl in the eyes. The lyrics were also changed to say “Chelsea you can see your halo I pray you won’t fade away…”
I’m willing to bet there were few dry eyes in the arena that night.
Beyoncé is true sweetheart, and I don’t think she’s done these nice gestures for brownie points. I think she really is a genuine person.
