Miranda Lambert showed off her sweet and sentimental side over the weekend when she asked one of her biggest little fans to join her onstage.
The special moment happened on Saturday (Oct. 26) during the CMA Female Vocalist of the Year nominee’s show at the INTRUST Bank Arena in Wichita, Kansas, as part of her Roadside Bars & Pink Guitars Tour.
Before launching into her 2013 single, “All Kinds of Kinds,” Lambert pointed out 8-year-old Remi, who was standing in the crowd decked out in pink fringe sleeves and a headband reading, “You can’t ride in my little red wagon.”
Weekend 6. IL, MO, KS. Thanks for the magic. Speaking of magic, this little girl Remi stole my heart. Sometimes there is a face in the crowd that captivates you. Thank you for the tears and smiles and for being who you are. You inspired all of us last night. I’ll never forget you. #girlsrule #roadsidebarsandpinkguitars

“This little girl has stolen my heart all night long, and I just want to meet her up close and personal,” Lambert, who shared the entire moment to her Facebook page, told the crowd of thousands, as a member of her crew ushered Remi to the stage.
Once the two came face to face, it was clear the little girl from Kansas City was overcome with emotion. She began to cry tears of joy, which then caused Lambert to well up herself. Luckily, the crowd was on hand to help Lambert and her new pal out with the lyrics to “All Kinds of Kinds,” while the band played the melody. At one point, Remi gathered enough courage to sing a few lines into the microphone, making the magical moment that much more incredible for everyone in the room.
As it turns out, Remi’s mother, Chelsea, was grateful for the experience too. She took to social media to express her gratitude to Lambert for allowing her daughter to be front and center.
Thank you all for boosting Remi’s confidence tonight. She was born with nerve damage on the side of her face which makes her have a crooked smile. Thank you for showing her it’s beautiful to be different. @mirandalambert @GwenSebastian @PistolAnnies @ElleKingMusic @AshleyMcBryde pic.twitter.com/eE1XgQKRuC
