Céline Dion gave a 7-year-old fan the opportunity to sing live at her Las Vegas residency last week and the result not only impressed the crowd, but the Canadian icon herself.

In a video posted by the fan, named Anjali Singh, on Instagram and YouTube, Dion can be seen handing the microphone over to Singh and telling her to "sing for the Colosseum of Las Vegas." Singh, who was decked out in sequins and a unicorn headband, then went on and belted out the words to Dion's 2002 song, "I Surrender."

When Singh finished, Dion knelt down to kiss her on the cheek and thanked her for singing. She then asks for a pencil or pen so she can get Singh's autograph because "if she goes back to America's Got Talent maybe she'll win." It's an endearing moment that ends with Dion singing a snippet of Alicia Keys' "Girl on Fire," directing its lyrics to Singh.

"My dream came true tonight!" Singh wrote on Instagram. "Thank you Celine Dion for giving me a memory of a lifetime."

Watch the moment below.
