Pink stops Philadelphia concert mid-song to comfort young fan crying in the audience (Video)
The ‘Just Give Me a Reason’ singer offered a Rice Krispies treat and a stuffed frog to the crying child to the cheers of the audience.
Pink may come off tough, but she clearly has a soft spot for children.
The singer, 33 and a mother herself, was in the middle of singing an acoustic version of her hit “Who Knew” during a concert in Philadelphia Sunday when she spotted a distraught little girl in the crowd. A fan caught the entire exchange on video.
“Is everything OK right here?” Pink asked the audience. “Is this little girl all right? What’s going on? Why is she crying? Why is she upset?”
Apparently, the youngster had been frightened by a brawl taking place nearby in the venue.
“You all are fighting around a little girl?” Pink asked incredulously.
“C’mon….all right, all right. I know, everyone’s about to fight. I know, I’m from here,” the singer, who grew up in Abington, Pa., joked.
The pop star then scooped up some of the gifts on stage that fans had thrown during the show, and offered the child a goody to soothe her.
“Honey, do you want this frog?” she plied.
“Will this frog and this Rice Krispies treat make you feel better?” she inquired. “You’re beautiful. Don’t cry. Cry when you’re older. Thank you for coming.”
Pink then turned her attention to the rest of the crowd before continuing her set.
“Cut it out, y’all,” she scolded. “We’re grown-ass women.”
Pink’s maternal instinct doesn’t come from nowhere: She has her own 1-year-old little girl, Willow, with motocross racer Carey Hart.
