A little girl who dreamed of performing a song with her idol, country music star Nathan Carter, has had her wish granted by Irish charity Make a Wish.
Katie Cronin (11) from who is battling Hodgkin’s Lymphoma had the opportunity to meet Nathan ahead of his concert in Leopardstown last week.
The Liverpudlian singer celebrated Katie’s birthday by arranging a guitar-shaped cake for the occasion and even signed her guitar.
The Cork schoolgirl, who herself is a talented musician, happily picked up her guitar to perform ‘Wagon Wheel’ with the star, the song which helped him rise to international recognition.
To top off the afternoon, the singer invited Katie to help him present the trophy to the winning connections of the Nathan Carter Handicap Race at Leopardstown Racecourse before he took to the stage.
The Irish charity has granted more than 1,800 wishes to Irish children living with life-threatening medical conditions since 1992.
