Pink left the stage midshow to hug a teenager who announced on a homemade sign that her mother recently died and she needed a hug

CBS reports 14-year-old Leah Murphy brought a sign to the concert saying she had lost her mother last month, and she said she would "LOVE a hug".

Leah's mother was a huge Pink fan and was supposed to attend the show, but died in June after purchasing the tickets.

Fans would help Murphy get her wish by alerting Pink to the sign.

"She's just a huge, huge fan of Pink, and so was her mum, so it was just incredible she took the time to give her a hug".

Katrina Donkin says the encounter lifted her niece's spirits during the hard time, saying Leah hasn't stopped smiling since the concert. But, Pink made sure the teen's night was extra special-just the way her mom would have wanted. "Please!" to the singer's concert in Brisbane on Monday.

So, Murphy's aunt, Katrina Donkin, bought a ticket and took her to the Brisbane concert. "Debbie loved to dance more than anything". "I would love a hug", Ms Donkin said. "It was just enough for Pink to say, 'what is that?'".

Workers with open office seating are less stressed
The data also showed those working in open plan offices took around 1,000 more steps a day than those with their own office. Older office workers were more likely to have higher stress levels.

Her mother had tickets to attend Pink's Sydney concert, before it was rescheduled due to the singer's illness.

"We couldn't believe it worked", Ms Donkin said. I lost my lovely mum last month.

Donkin said the Grammy-winning songstress couldn't clearly read the signs from the stage, but someone in the crowd passed her "a little brochure about Leah", which she read. She said, "Oh, don't cry".

Leah's special moment with Pink nearly didn't happen - the night before the concert Ms Donkin realised the tickets were still on her bedside table in Cairns, more than 1,680 kilometres away. 'We think her mum sent her a hug from heaven'.

"I had strangers in the crowd grab them off us as well and start waving them".
