CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Country music singer Miranda Lambert was overcome with emotion while singing a song she co-wrote with her husband Blake Shelton about his brother’s death.

At a concert in Corpus Christi, Texas, Lambert was singing the song “Over You” when she saw a little girl in the audience wearing a pink cowboy hat and matching face mask. Brooke Hester, 7, has been battling neuroblastoma, a cancer that grows in nerve tissue.

When Lambert saw Hester, she reached out and held her hand and looked into her eyes.

Then Lambert’s own eyes filled with tears and she couldn’t sing anymore. She head the microphone up to the audience so they could finish the song for her.

“It was very emotional and very special,” Brooke’s mother Jessica told the Today show.
Her mom said she kept thinking, “Oh, my gosh, she’s still holding her hand, she’s still holding her hand, she’s still holding her hand!’ And she wasn’t letting go. You could just feel the love surrounding the moment.”
