Katy Perry Fan, 12, Wishes Bullies Would Stop Picking on Her Sister with Autism
A 12-year-old Katy Perry fan got the surprise of a lifetime when the singer invited her on stage at her Kansas City tour stop on Friday.
Zoe headed to the Missouri show with her family after her stepmother surprised her with tickets to see her favorite star.
The night got even better when Perry, 33, invited Zoe on stage and asked her to make a wish.
“I wish for my 17-year-old sister with autism to stop getting bullied by the kids at her school,” Zoe told the “Swish Swish” singer.
Zoe told KCTV: “I care about my sister a huge deal. I would die for her.”
Perry, moved by Zoe’s wish, vowed to pay a visit to the sister’s school in Wichita, Kansas.Katy Perry on How She Can Do It All: ‘[I’m] Single!’
The pair embraced on stage and Perry led the audience in a chant of “no more bullying,” KWCH reports.
“I was just freaking out, I was actually up there next to Katy Perry,” Zoe told the station.
Other video footage shared on Twitter showed a giddy Zoe holding Perry’s hand as she told the singer where she’s from.
“@katyperry brought tears to my eyes! A 12 year old, and her wish was for people at school to stop bulling her Autistic sister #NoBullying,” the Twitter user wrote alongside the video.
