Aussie singer Kylie Minogue has made two young girls’ day after reaching out to them following the death of their beloved mother.
During their final moments together, Sophie and Lauren decided to sing Kylie’s song “Dancing” to their mum. Father Lee Cripps filmed the beautiful moment, later sharing it on Twitter for all to see.
Our girls singing to their mummy, the day before she died. Alex died on 10th Jan 2019. Really want @kylieminogue to see this, to see how much her music means to us as a family and I would love for our girls to meet her. Please RT in the hope it reaches her. @BrainTumourOrg pic.twitter.com/8hckyH4UNm

In the tear-jerking video, that was filmed from the family’s home in Berkshire in England, the girls can be heard singing: “‘When I go out, I wanna go out dancing. And when the final curtain falls, we could say we did it all. The never ending of a perfect day”.
Lee captioned the post: Our girls singing to their mummy, the day before she died. Alex died on 10th Jan [sic] 2019. Really want @kylieminogue to see this, to see how much her music means to us as a family and I would love for our girls to meet her”.
Kylie showed her support to the family, leaving a beautiful comment on the post, where she explained how touched she was to see how her music impacted them.
“Lee, thank you for sharing this tender moment of your girls singing to Alex,” she wrote. “I’m so touched and so very sorry for your loss. Sending you and your girls lots of love.”
A clearly excited Lee replied to Kylie, thanking her for her words of support.
“Thank you for your lovely reply Kylie! I showed the girls this morning, their first questions was ‘wow,, do you know Kylie?'” he said on Twitter. “I kindly told them that no, but I’d like to! Explained the power of Twitter and some of the other lovely replies we’ve had.”
Since the video was shared on Twitter earlier this week, the post has received over 1,000 views with many more leaving messages of support for the young family.
“Sorry for your loss, hope you and your girls are doing well at this sad time. Such a lovely and touching moment for your young girls and their mum, wishing you all well for the future,” one person commented.
“Lee losing someone as close as their mum must be hard for anyone but especially two young girls. You must be so proud. I send the three of you lots of love and hugs,” another wrote.
While a third added: “I couldn’t watch all of this it broke my heart how brave are these little girls god bless them”.
According to The Daily Mail, Alex was diagnosed with a malignant tumour called glioblastoma in February 2014. She died in January this year at the age of 40.
