Beyoncé Sings with a Blind Fan at Her Concert
There's just something about Beyoncé that inspires people.

A few days after her single "Get Me Bodied" soundtracked an emotional operating-room dance party, the pop star once again warmed hearts all over the globe this weekend when she let a legally blind fan sing with her during a concert in Australia.

At the Perth stop of her The Mrs. Carter Show world tour, Beyoncé picked 13-year-old Sophie Kotkis out of the crowd and let her sing the famous hook to the 2006 hit "Irreplaceable": "To the left, to the left."

Kotkis, who also has trouble hearing and moving her muscles, was ecstatic to get the chance to meet one of her idols – though she kept her cool better than other Beyoncé fans have.

The once-in-a-lifetime encounter was made possible by Kotkis's older sister Ellie, who created a video about Sophie's fundraising efforts for those with multiple sclerosis.

"Even with everything that she's been through, she's been able to do so much," Ellie Kotkis told the Perth News.

Through a family friend, the video made its way to Beyoncé's manager, and a surprise was born.
