This is such a lovely gesture from the iconic musician…

You may remember the touching story about Lily-Mae Morrison and the single ‘Tiny Dancer – A Song for Lily-Mae’ being recorded to help raise money to fund her treatment for a rare form of cancer.

The song has over 280,000 views on YouTube so far and the funds have been a big help in Lily-Mae’s treatment.

It seems that the little girl’s battle with Stage IV Neuroblastoma – a rare childhood cancer of the nervous system – has won her a special admirer, as Elton John couldn’t contain his admiration and pride that his song was chosen for such a brilliant cause.

The musician paid tribute to those people who supported the fundraiser before his recent gig at the 3Arena in Dublin. The ‘Your Song’ and ‘Rocket Man’ singer also took the time to meet Lily-Mae and her family before he went on stage.

Fair play to all involved and this footage is something special.
