English indie rock band Florence And The Machine played in Austin, Texas this weekend, but one of their biggest fans was unable to attend.

That’s why Florence Welch and her guitarist played a surprise gig for a 15-year-old girl at a local hospice.

The private 45-minute performance was organized to lift the spirits of Karinya who is ailing from cancer, and a roomful of her friends.

The teen girls sang backup at one point–with Florence cheering them on.

A pile of band merchandise wasn’t the only thing the musicians left behind, a palpable joy lingered in hallways long after the powerful singer had left the building.
