Adele made one young fan's dreams come true when she paid a visit to her bedside ahead of her latest sell-out tour gig.
The chart-topping singer called at the home of 12-year-old Rebecca Gibney in Belfast.
Adele superfan Rebecca has a range of serious health problems, including cerebral palsy and epilepsy, and is confined to bed.
The surprise visit came after Rebecca's mum Tracy launched a campaign to try to get a message from Adele.
She created an online petition, contacted the singer's management and tweeted requests for help ahead of the star's much anticipated Belfast dates.
All her efforts paid off when she received a call on Tuesday morning informing her the Oscar, Bafta and Grammy-winning artist intended to go one better than a video or Facetime message and was actually on her way round.
The south London songstress called into the family home in Belfast's Short Strand on Tuesday afternoon to spend some quality time with young Rebecca.
Tracy was overwhelmed by the gesture.
"I am so blessed and thankful that Adele came to my home today," she said.
Adele played her second consecutive show to 11,000 fans in Belfast's SSE Arena on Tuesday night at the start of her world tour, which sees her play more than a 100 dates in nine months.
