In a rare moment, Kanye West got super emotional at his concert on Sept. 17 after he spotted a fan in the crowd wearing a t-shirt dedicated to his late mother Donda West. WATCH the video of Kanye giving the concertgoer a heartfelt shout-out right here!
Kanye West, 39, isn’t usually one to be sentimental, but he was taken by surprise during his Miami, FL concert when he spotted a fan wearing a tribute to his mother Donda. After he noticed the girl’s shirt, Ye called out to her from his suspended platform. “The girl with the ‘In loving memory of’ [t-shirt] and the ‘Runaway’ tattoo right here. You literally brought tears to my eyes,” he said. Aww.
The rapper then asked the girl what her name was, and her friends screamed, ‘Krystal!’. Kanye sang her name to the crowd, which was more or less a dream come true for the fan, and obviously she started sobbing, too. Anyway, not many people can say they made Yeezy cry! WATCH the amazing video above.

Krystal Aguirre, 22, AKA “The Girl with the Runaway Tattoo”, told MTV that this was her first Kanye concert, and that she got the tattoo, which features a ballerina, in April 2015. “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy is my favorite Kanye album. It’s a perfect album, from start to finish. And I’ve always loved Condo’s work — it’s creative, different, and crazy. So it was a perfect combination, from two artists,” she told the outlet. “When I listen to his music, I literally feel it. So to hear him see me. It was very emotional,” Krystal added about the show. “And to know that everyone around me felt emotional too. There was love in the room.” So awesome.
HollywoodLifers, do you think it’s sweet that Krystal wore a shirt dedicated to Kanye’s mom?
