Dreams really do come true.
Back in May of 2018, Victoria Anthony was a 12-year-old girl from British Columbia with one mission and one mission only: to sing live with her favorite singer in the world, Pink.
It just so happened that the Grammy-winning pop singer and mother of two was prepping to perform in Vancouver on her “Beautiful Trauma” tour. So, the aspiring young singer took to social media with her #VicAndPink campaign, using the power of Twitter, Facebook and YouTube to try and reach the superstar.
“Hey Pink, please let me sing on stage with you in Vancouver May 12. I’ll be ready!” she tweeted.
Just before her big concert, Pink happened to hear about the very talented Victoria on the news and decided to help make her ultimate dream come true. In the middle of the show, she invited Victoria towards the stage and handed her her own microphone, not knowing what would come out of her biggest fan’s mouth.
Would Victoria be too nervous to perform as well as she usually does?
And with that, Victoria started to belt out “Perfect,” Pink’s hard-hitting ballad even the most seasoned singers find challenging. (And in front of her idol and the audience of thousands, no less!)
Pink stood back and watched Victoria in shock, at one point covering her mouth and on the verge of tears. “I sounded like Alvin and the Chipmunks when I was 12!” Pink joked.
Victoria, overwhelmed by what had just happened after handing back the mic, started to cry, too, once reality hit.
Many YouTube commenters couldn’t help but notice the security guard standing behind them with a big smile; even he was delighted by the heartwarming impromptu duet.
“Thank you Pink for making me feel I can do anything,” Victoria tweeted after the show.
