Known as one of the biggest superstars to touch our generation, Beyoncé just continues to amaze us day after day. Making headlines every day without even releasing her highly anticipated album, Mrs. Carter is showing the world that her empire isn’t going anywhere.
While the “Bow Down” songstress closes up her Australian leg of the now legendary tour, she’s done nothing but continuously wow fans with not only her performance, but photo bombing audience members and facetiming mid performance with a fan. This time around though, Queen Bey did something a little different for a very special young fan.
13-year-old Sophie Kotkis may be blind and suffers from hearing and muscle difficulties, but that didn’t stop her from being in the audience to witness her idol perform in her hometown. Adding to this memorable moment for young Sophie, Beyoncé enlisted the teen to assist her in singing her 2006 hit, “Irreplaceable”. Set up by Kotkis’ older sister, Ellie, and the Hope for Children charity, Sophie had no idea what was about to happen.
After letting the adorable redhead know what was coming, the “Freakum Dress” songstress stated, “Sophie, I think you need to help me sing this song. Do you think you can sing to the left?” After the assist from Sophie, Beyoncé then went on to serenade the teen and her family members.
Having performed over 100 shows and still having the second leg of the North America and Canada tour, Mrs. Carter has much to celebrate. Not only has she done the unthinkable and made the dreams come true of many fans who were just there to enjoy the show, she can also add the fact that her Australian leg of the tour was one of her most successful and profitable ventures. Selling almost 220,000 tickets and grossing more than $40 million (AUD), the tour has impressed all naysers and put all questions to rest about her reign as queen.
Take a look below as Queen Bey and Sophie give an awe-worthy performance of “Irreplaceable”:
