Many of us dream of singing our favourite singer’s songs in front of them but how often does that happen? For Victoria Anthony though, her dream came true when Pink brought her “Beautiful Trauma World Tour” to Vancouver, Canada.
The 12-year-old girl had been campaigning on social media to perform at Pink’s concert since the start of the month. On 12th May, she got to perform not just in front of Pink but the entire venue at Rogers Arena.
Hey @Pink , please let me sing on stage with you in #Vancouver May 12. I’ll be ready! – Victoria (age 12) Share this video and tag #vicandpink to make my dream come true. https://t.co/tlv4FhjtDm #BeautifulTraumaWorldTour @RogersArena #WhatAboutUs pic.twitter.com/FqoYuiekcT

“When you come here, I really want to sing at your concert,” said Anthony. She even gave a few examples of her vocal chops, hoping it will help gain traction and the attention of her favourite pop star. The hashtag #vicandpink quickly went viral and it even made it unto several Canadian media outlets. On top of that, Grammy-winning artist and fellow Canadian singer Sarah McLachlan also lend her support.
On the actual day itself, Pink recognise the young talent in the crowd and asked, “Are you who I read about on the news? Do you want to come sing something?” Although Anthony didn’t get to be on stage, Pink handed her the mic and told her to sing whatever she wanted.

Anthony sang “Perfect” to Pink as the crowd cheered her on. “You’re amazing,” the 38-year-old entertainer proclaimed. “Thank you for that,” the still-amazed Pink said after returning onstage. “How do you follow that?” Judging from Pink’s response, it’s safe to assume that Anthony’s rendition was pretty “perfect”.
