Pink's compassion shone through when she stopped her concert in Brisbane, Australia, back in 2018 after seeing a 14-year-old girl hold up a sign. The sign said that the young teen's mother had died recently. Leah Murphy, who flew from north Queensland to Brisbane, was in the audience along with her aunt, Katrina Donkin, holding up posters that read: "Hi, my name's Leah. I'm 14 years old and I just lost my beautiful mom. I would love a hug.”

The young girl's mother Debbie, who passed away two months before the show, had tickets to attend one of Pink's Australian shows before her death, reports FOX News. Leah decided to go to the concert because she believed her mother would have wanted her to attend. The duo loved the musician's songs and her music was one of the many ways in which Leah and her mother bonded.
