Adele is famous for making us weep like babies at the sound of her haunting, stunningly gorgeous voice as it finds its way under your skin and to your very core. Combine that with how awesome and chill and hilarious she is when she isn’t singing and we’re no longer just fans; we want to be friends with her.
And just when you thought we couldn’t find one more reason to adore her, well, there is another reason (we knew there would be).
Tracy Gibney, mom of 12-year-old Rebecca who is blind and suffers from cerebral palsy and epilepsy, knew Adele’s tour would bring her to Belfast so she created a Change.org petition to fulfill her daughter’s dream of meeting the singer.
“I have a very sick daughter who [has] cerebal palsy, epilepsy, can’t walk or talk and is tube fed, [and] she has recently became bed bound,” Gibney wrote in her online campaign. “She listens to Adele from [when] she gets up in the morning until her bed time. All I am asking for is for Adele to FaceTime [with] Rebecca or send her a video message, it would be her dream come true, please please help for my beautiful sick little daughter.”
Gibney didn’t get a response but that doesn’t mean Adele didn’t hear her. The singer surprised the family at home, Gibney told The Belfast Telegraph, where she held Rebecca’s hand, played with her hair and talked about Frozen. She also offered the family tickets to see her concert.
“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,” she told the paper. “She was really lovely.”
Just the best, right? Now excuse us while we wipe the rain from our face.
