Beyonce is currently on her world tour and in the UK and has made two of her fans dreams come true.
Rob McGuire, 16, was in the parking lot of Newbury Retail Park when he spotted Bey and her crew walking by. She was incognito but he just knew it was her. He gathered up the courage to ask Mrs. Carter if she would speak to his best friend on the phone, who is a ‘self proclaimed biggest fan’ of the singer. He spoke to Newbury Today about what happened.
She had bodyguards with her. She was wearing dark glasses and a hooded top, but I was fairly positive it was her. I called my friend because she is a huge fan. I didn’t want to be rude and just walk up to her. But then she walked right near me. I looked at one of the bodyguards and he looked at me, and then I looked at Beyoncé and just asked ‘would you speak to my mate, she’s your biggest fan?’ and she took the phone.”
Shortly thereafter, Rob had had his moment with the superstar, and helped to make Brandy Funderburk’s dream come true. Though these two will probably be talking about this forever, if this wasn’t enough, they also received two tickets to Beyonce’s sold out show at the O2 arena. Brandy said,
I knew it was her from her voice. I’ve seen countless interviews, all her films, videos, songs, so I know her voice. I talked to her for about a minute, I don’t really know what I said, just off on one telling her how much of a fan I was. My heart was pounding, I was bright red, and I felt faint.
I told Beyoncé that I’d been trying to get tickets for ages, and asked her was there any way to get them – and she said we could have two. It was amazing. It was so nice of her. She said she would have someone bring them round within four hours. I don’t know if I was really expecting the tickets to turn up.”
Just two hours later, Rob says,
I was at home, there was a knock on the door and Beyoncé’s assistant was on the doorstep. I wanted to hug her – but I didn’t. I wasn’t sure about telling people, I didn’t want to seem ungrateful, but I really wanted to tell them thanks. People still don’t believe it.”
Beyonce may be a billion dollar pop star, but she’s always remained genuine and loyal to her fans & this just proves it! So sweet of her!
