Selena Gomez Rocks NY State Fair -- and a Very Special Bracelet (PHOTOS)


For the thousands in attendance at the New York State Fair to see Selena Gomez perform, it was a great night of music and entertainment. For one little girl and her family, it was a night they'll never forget thanks to a gracious act from Gomez -- and Celebuzz has the whole story.

The bracelet on Selena's right arm that can be seen during her performance from Saturday night was actually given to her just before the show by Kadi Luchsinger, who got to slip backstage for a meet and greet with the pop star before the show with her daughter, Taylor. Upon meeting Selena and professing her fandom,Taylor and Kadi handed Selena a bracelet, explaining that it was a benefit bracelet for her son Ethan, who suffers from a rare chromosome disorder called Duplication 15 Syndrome. Selena happily accepted the gift and goodbyes were said, Taylor and Kadi went their seats and not much else was expected.

Then, Selena hit the stage wearing the very bracelet they had just handed her.

"My friend said she put it on - I didn't believe her and then when she opened the show ... she was raised from the stage with her arm in the air and the first thing we saw was the blue bracelet being raised from the stage and I started crying," proud mom Kadi tells Celebuzz.

Selena kept the bracelet on through most of the show (even despite a power outage!), showing that a little act of kindness (and wardrobe flexibility) can go a very long way.

On Sunday morning, Ethan -- the little boy who Selena's bracelet is supporting -- said a very special thank you to Gomez for her kind-heartedness. Watch it below:

 

After the show, Selena has a very quick turnaround and had to jump on a flight from New York to Los Angeles, where she'll be presenting at the VMAs on Sunday night.

    Usually I don't read post on blogs, but I would like to say that this write-up very pressured me to take a look at and do it! Your writing style has been amazed me. Thank you, very great article.

    Hmmm, I think this outfit is a little too sexy for Selena Gomez, I dont really think she suits that type of style. She definately has more class than that!

    We are extremely grateful that Selena cared more for a child's feelings than her wardrobe. As a family affected by Dup15q we appreciate her gesture and hope this will increase awareness about this disorder and the difficulties the family's face and overcome. Thanks Selena.

    I think that it is great that Selena would show support for a fan's son by wearing a special bracelet for Dup15q. We have a granddaughter, Grace, with this disorder and appreciate Selena showing her support this way.

    hey 'ugh'...selena made about 5 million last year. how many millions have u made? exactly. she's one of the few young stars who has remained humble and has given back..i say that makes for a great role model.

    i tend to agree with you, although I don't agree with Madonna being used as a barometer here. Madonna slept her way to the top, spreading her legs for record company execs, producers, etc. I doubt Selena Gomez has done the same, but I ask parents of the little girls who idolize this chic... would you support your daughters' infatuation with Selena Gomez if you knew she was getting pounded by Justin Bieber? Bieber is a horny little toad who I am sure does his best to get some from her. Bieber has been spotted (and photographed) groping and kissing Gomez on numerous occasions. Not exactly a girl I would want my young and impressionable daughter idolizing ;)

    @ugh Everybody has the right to entitled their own idol, such as you. As much as I LOVE Madonna, SG has done much more than she did at the age Selena did it, Selena has a long way to go and FYI, not every big hitting star of right now was successful when they were young and fresh to hollywood, they had to work for it and take TIME, which Selena is doing so brillantly. You sir/madam/whatever you are, your comment is rude and not only does it insult Selena, but her fans as WELL. How are we idiots if we like her or not? More like YOU are the idiot for taking the time to write such uncalled things to say on a POST that is not about what she wore or who she was out with, but a post about showing love to her fans and helping a cause. You don't have to be successful right away to have somebody being your idol, her success is not the reason she's our idol, her heart & persona is, the person she is makes us love her, and so far, I could say she is pretty gosh darn successful. Take notes darling! (2 gold certified albums, platinum recording song hits, Emmy winning TV show, youngest Unicef Ambassador in history, Style icon, Humanitarian Icon, Movie starlet, and much more.) Success fades away, but the heart & admiration stays.

    This made me really happy, she has helped so much and with me having a little brother with autism this reaches my heart and deepens my love even more towards Selena. This girl can be famous for just helping people and I admire that, this young woman has a LONG, and hear me right! LONG way to go in her career in hollywood & so many good things coming to her.

    no offense but you guys are sad. If Selena gomez is your idol then you have a mental problem. She isnt succesful at all. I would rather have madonna as my role model at least she is more succesful. Selena gomez is nothing her songs arent even on the billboard hot 100 and all her movies flop. Your an idiot if shes your idol.
