A 15-year-old girl at nearby Hospice Austin’s Christopher House was confined to her bed and unable to attend the concert.
She and her best friend had long planned to attend that night’s Florence and the Machine concert. Unfortunately, she landed in hospice and was too weak to make it.
She was crushed, but good news was right around the corner.
The day after the band’s Austin concert, Welch and guitarist Rob Ackroyd decided to make that 15-year-old’s dream come true — with a private concert.
It’s not every day you go from performing in front of thousands of people to joining just a roomful of people in song and celebration — but that’s exactly what Welch and Ackroyd did. At the hospice, the two played through songs such as “Shake It Out” and “Dog Days Are Over,” with Welch holding the patient’s hand and focusing her energy.
Even watching the video takes you into this sort of otherworldly, joyous experience.
SHARE this wonderful moment with all your friends and family if it touched your soul!
