On the final leg of The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour of New Holland Presented By Beyoncé, Beyoncé pulled a classic Beyoncé move and changed the lives not only of all those in her vibe radius but one thirteen-year-old from Perth in particular – one tween amongst a sea of fifteen thousand who all surrendered their hard-earned babysitting cash for the chance to be granted an audience with The Joy of Being Alive In The Present Moment.
Sophie, a blind girl with hearing and muscle difficulties, was submitted via video by her older – and best eva – sister Ellie to perform a front and centre duet with Bey during ‘Irreplacable’ on the penultimate night of the latter’s time in Australia. Beyoncé, being both the living embodiment of Aladdin’s genie and the only person able to pull of a midnight blue sequinned catsuit, granted unto Ellie and Sophie that wish; it being the least she could do, I mean, someone had to sing that daggy/incredible hook anyway.
“She’s never really been able to go to a concert due to logistical reasons so I made a video about Sophie,” said Ellie, adding: “I think someone as amazing as Sophie deserves to meet someone as amazing as [Beyonce]. She had no idea that she was going to sing with her. It was amazing.”
Watch as a life is made below, then cry tears of joy forevermore. Thank you Beysed God.
Previously on Beyoncé in Australia, a Melbourne maths teacher elicited the greatest reaction ever after arguably upstaging Bey; you missed the chance to bey in Beyoncé’s next music video; Life was revealed to be but a dream; and a royal hyperlink of approval was given to Dion Lee, Emma Mulholland and other creative youths. What a time to bey alive.
