Singer Katy Perry Visits Home of Fan With Cancer Who Missed Out on Concert

A 6-year-old Australian girl, Grace Moore, was devastated to miss out on a Katy Perry concert in Adelaide, Australia due to an operation to treat her brain cancer. However, she got something even better: a home visit by the singer on July 31.

Grace was unfortunately diagnosed with a 6-cm tumor in her head and has been dealing with the consequences all year. The girl has been a big fan of Katy Perry since age 3, and she was given concert tickets as a birthday present.

When Grace missed the concert, her 16-year-old sister, Tiana, urged people to retweet Grace’s story about battling cancer and hopefully gain the attention of the pop singer.

After over 20,000 retweets, Grace was blessed with a sudden visit by Perry, alongside her parents, Tiana, and her cousins, in Banksia Park, according to The Advertiser.

“When Katy arrived out the front, Grace was a bit shell-shocked. She was just in awe, the smile on her face was just priceless,” her mother Marie told The Advertiser.

Perry was invited to a tour of Grace’s bedroom, and afterward she sang three of her songs picked out by Grace: “Firework,” “Roar,” and “Chained to the Rhythm,” reported People.

Katy Perry spent an hour with the family, including posing for photos, and she even shared a video of herself and Grace with her more than 70 million followers.

Marie told The Advertiser that the singer was a really genuine and nice person.

“Just the way she spoke to all of my kids, she’s really heartfelt,” she said.
