UNITED KINGDOM – Adele was recently performing ‘Someone Like You’ at the Manchester Arena in the United Kingdom when she invited a special, talented 12-year-old girl to join her.

According to the Manchester Evening News, 12-year-old Emily Tammam has autism and is often very shy. But her family said Adele is her favorite and they took a sign saying ‘It is my dream to sing with Adele.’

Emily previously auditioned for Britain’s Got Talent in 2014 but didn’t make it to the TV rounds.

When Adele noticed her sign, she invited her right up.

“She came up on the stage, as I was sat there thinking ‘Oh my god’. Emily went up quite happily, she loves singing. She sings every day of her life.,” said her dad Ray Tammam.

“She has a constant struggle with social situations, but amazingly she manages to sing in public. She has a different persona when she is on stage,” he added.
