Fan Dedication Leads to Tears

A fan of British rock group Coldplay was stunned when she heard lead singer Chris Martin dedicate a song to her at their concert last month.
Nicky Sheehy, 27, had been battling cancer and found that the In My Place band's music helped her through her difficult time.
She says, "Coldplay's music was uplifting and inspired me to think there was a future. Chris Martin's voice helped me chase away my troubles."
She regularly logged on to the band's website, where she then told her online pals she had gone into remission.
Unbeknownst to Nicky, however, internet friend Andy Ledder secretly asked the band to dedicate her favorite song Everything's Not Lost to her, when she went to see the band at London's Royal Albert Hall.
At the concert in aid of the Teenage Cancer Trust, Nicky gasped when Chris said, "This is for Nicky" as he began singing the track.
And the next day, the website confirmed that the dedication was indeed meant for her.
She says, "I cried so much. The dedication made me feel really special."
