Selena gomez comforts adoring fan during we day vancouver rehearsals

Selena Gomez dazzled in pink at We Day Vancouver last Wednesday (October 22). The double platinum recording artist hosted the big event; sharing her voice, inspiration and energy with over 20,000 screaming students that had earned their way to We Day. But it wasn’t the first time Gomez lent her name to a good cause. The star was named youngest goodwill Ambassador for UNICEF at the age of 18 and her hard work and dedication to helping others has only grown in the years since.

On top of giving back to those in need, keeping a busy schedule as a performer and hanging out with the Dalai Lama, Gomez is also a loyal friend to BFF, Taylor Swift and during the We Day rehearsals we got to see just what kind of friend she could be.

A few lucky fans got to share a seat with Gomez while she prepped for the next big announcement and one young fan couldn’t be more excited. The fan was so overwhelmed by the star she was in tears—happy tears of course. Assuming Gomez and been there for a few of T-Swift’s tearful moments, she knows a thing or two about comforting a friend. The lucky fan got to experience just how sweet and sympathetic Gomez could be. She was quick to put her arm around the girl, reassuring her it would all be ok. She even managed to turn tears into laughter, ‘I feel bad. I don’t want to hurt you.’ It was the perfect representation of just how loving and compassionate Gomez could be, but it wasn’t anything we didn’t already know about the star.

Check out Selena Gomez’s adorable fan moment in the clip below and be sure to watch her on the We Day broadcast premiere Tuesday, November 11 at 8e/5p only on MTV!
