Video of Elton Meeting Lily-Mae
Elton John dedicated a performance of his hit song Tiny Dancer at the 3Arena to brave Lily-Mae Morrison after meeting her on Tuesday.
Lily-Mae, 6, is suffering from Stage IV Neuroblastoma, a rare childhood cancer of the nervous system.
Two years ago family and friends got together to release a charity single covering John's hit, Tiny Dancer, and it was a massive success.
And last night, the legendary rocker paid tribute to those who got behind the fundraiser after meeting Lily-Mae and her family yesterday.
Before playing the song, he told the audience: "One of the nicest things that has happened in the last 18 months was that a group of Irish entertainers and musicians got together and made a record to enhance the life of a little girl called Lily.
"And they chose one of my songs to actually perform the record and that was a huge compliment and I was very, very touched.
"And loves what they did with the song, and even more so, I loved what they did for the little girl, and it showed that human kindness has reigns supreme in this world.
"I want to thank those musicians from the bottom of my heart, and I had the pleasure of meeting Lily Mae with her parents before the show.
"I'm wearing her armband, and her badge, and I want to wish her all the best."
