Pink Stops Show to Hug Fan Whose Mom Recently Died

It's always cool when artists get real and down-to-earth, and this is just one of many moments that Pink has demonstrated her authenticity. 

During her show in Brisbane, Australia, a fan held up a handmade sign that read: "My name is Leah - I'm 14 years old. I lost my beautiful Mum last month. I would LOVE a hug...Please!" 

When she saw the sign, Pink left the stage to make her way over to Leah, hugged her, and said, "You're pretty - oh don't cry - it's going to be OK." 

USA TODAY says Leah's mother had planned to see Pink in Sydney, but passed away before she could. That's when the girl's aunt purchased tickets to the Brisbane concert so that Leah could celebrate the life of her mom. 

See the moment shared by CBS News below.
