Aspiring singer Jessica Shine (14) had a night to remember last Saturday after she sang on stage with her favourite popstar, Jessie J.
It all happened when on the spur of the moment she called out to the singer in the National Stadium to ask could she come on stage with her, and happily, she said yes!
“I was sitting in the second row and she was talking to the crowd in an Irish accent, which she didn't think was that good. I screamed up I can help you with that. I was talking to her (from my seat) and then I just took the chance and I asked can I sing with you?”
Jessica, who is a member of Atomic Stage School and the Athlone School of Singers, was then invited on stage where she belted out a fantastic rendition of 'Flashlight' by Jessie J (real name Jessica Cornish) in front of her idol and fans screaming out her name.
You can watch a brief clip of that moment here:
