A young boy at Gwen Stefani's concert was delighted when the singer brought him on-stage and posed for photographs after she discovered her music had help him overcome bullying.
The 46-years old, who has spoken openly about her relationship with God, shared an Instagram post on how her prayer was answered after meeting the fan.
With hashtags 'zero tolerance for bullies', 'one love', and 'this is what the truth feels like'; she posted a video of the fan with her.
"About three years ago when things were hard in my life I prayed to God everyday that I could get a chance to use my gift that God gave me and make a difference in some way in this world — last night this little guy was the answer to my prayers," she wrote.
The 'Send me a Picture' singer called the boy on stage after her eyes caught a cardboard note held by the victim's mother. She invited the fan, amid loud cheers from the fans in the concert, after reading out the note.
"My son was bullied from first to fifth grade. He would come home everyday upset but he'd go to his room, listen to your music and smile," reads the sign.
The fan cried while Stefani embraced him and raised his hands up for the shutterbugs to capture the emotional moment and later met his family backstage.
The lead vocalist of the band No Doubt is often seen wearing a simple cross around her neck despite her edgy image.
Stefani has previously said she "channelled God" for the inspiration for her new album 'This Is What the Truth Feels Like'.
