Get your tissues ready. Miranda Lambert showed just how big her heart was on Sept. 13 when she performed an extremely emotional version of ‘Over You,’ and spent the last few verses holding hands with Brooke Hester, a 7-year-old fan with cancer. Watch the sweet video here.
Miranda Lambert just made the dreams come true of Brooke Hester. The 7-year-old cutie has been battling Stage IV Neuroblastoma Cancer since 2010, and on Sept. 13, stood alongside the stage at American Bank Center in Corpus Christi, Texas. While singing her emotional song, “Over You,” Miranda bent down to sing to Brooke — who was wearing a pink cowgirl hat and a mask over her face to prevent germs.
Miranda Lambert Cries At Concert Singing To Sick Fan
In the amazing video, Miranda continues singing to her while holding her hand but can not continue singing for long as she starts to cry. Even moments later after she stands up, she does not start singing again but instead lets the crowd finish the song, while she attempts to compose herself.
The song, “Over You.” is already an extremely personal and emotional song in itself — it was written by Miranda’s hubby, Blake Shelton about the his brother who died in a car accident. So, it was clear that Miranda was moved by the song, but even more by Brooke.
Brooke’s Tickets Were Anonymously Donated
Plus, it wasn’t an easy task for Brooke to go to the concert. Her mother spoke out to Taste of Country, revealing that it was her first concert ever and they weren’t sure if they’d even be able to make it. She was in a Michigan hospital when the tickets were donated anonymously — but luckily she was ok to go!
Brooke’s family has been sharing the video of the beautiful moment on their Facebook page, Brooke’s Blossoming Hope for Childhood Cancer Awareness Foundation. You can follow her journey there! We will be keeping Brooke in our prayers!
