BRISBANE, Australia -- Pink is known for her jaw dropping acrobatics and high energy performances, but it was no act when she stopped her show in Australia to comfort a fan.

Fourteen-year-old Leah Murphy attended Pink's show in Brisbane Monday night.

Leah's mother was a huge Pink fan, and she was supposed to go the concert with Leah. Instead, she passed away in June.

Leah held up a sign about her mother at the show, and it got Pink's attention.

The Pennsylvania native went into the crowd and gave Leah a hug.
