Here’s a Message to Beyonce from Her Biggest Fan in Australia
Sophie Kotkis got the thrill of a lifetime when Beyonce serenaded her from the front row of her concert over the weekend.
And she’s sharing her personal photos and videos with Celebuzz.
Sophie, who suffers from multiple sclerosis and is legally blind, had dreamt of the moment when she could meet her idol. And it was no easy feat to pull off, according to her sister.
“I have been trying for years and years, to get Sophie either backstage or into any form of concert,” Ellie Kotkis told CB! “I emailed promoters/celebrities teams/anyone I could. But the answer I got back was either always a fat NO or they just did not reply at all.”
When she heard that Beyonce was performing in Perth, Australia she thought she’d give it one last try and made a video about her inspirational sister’s zest for life. And with the help of Hope for Children, a charity supported by the singer, they received tickets to the concert Nov. 8.

“I kept this all a surprise for Soph up until the Wednesday before the concert,” added Ellie. “When we arrived we were greeted by Beyonce’s incredible and friendly staff. They looked after us so well and told Soph that Beyonce was excited she was there and looking forward to seeing her dancing.”

Beyonce’s staff surprised Sophie yet again with seats on side of the stage where she got a starring role in the performance — to give Bey her towel during the concert (watch below).
