Artists have long known that music is very powerful — it can inspire its listeners, it can help people relax and it even has a mystical healing effect. Recently, Shawn Mendes’ music helped one fan in facing her fears and finding the courage to do what she always longed to do — attending one of his concerts.

While music lovers won’t find going to a concert venue a serious issue at all, a fan of Mendes, Amelia, is a bit unique than others. She is also an Ariana Grande fan and was actually present in that May 22, 2017, concert where a bomb exploded, killing 22 of the concertgoers.

Having witnessed the bomb’s devastation, Amelia, who was just 11 at that time, was shaken to her core and was not even able to talk for days after the incident. Two years later, she was excited to learn that Mendes will be doing a concert in Manchester.

The only problem was that it will be held in the same venue where the attack happened two years ago. She’s not quite sure if she’s ready to go to the place once more, and it just so happened that her mom can’t go with her.

Thankfully, a kindhearted police officer named Aaron was just as determined as the now 13-year-old Amelia and helped her rediscover her passion for music. He then accompanied the teenager to the concert, where Mendes took the time to meet his fan before he started the show.

It’s heartwarming to see a very successful singer such as Mendes take some time to comfort someone suffering from a mental health issue. But it’s actually not too surprising for Mendes to sympathize with what Amelia is going through as he himself is battling a type of mental health issue.

The pop star recently opened up about his battle with anxiety. But he’s glad that he didn’t hide his condition since opening up to someone has helped him a lot. “Talking about the problem, putting it out there, was one of the scariest but most important things I’ve ever done,” he told People.

Of course, those who love music know that it helps. “I think music in itself is healing,” Billy Joel said. “It's an explosive expression of humanity. It's something we are all touched by. No matter what culture we're from, everyone loves music.”
