LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - It looks like Louisville's pint-sized viral sensation Audrey Nethery had an amazing time at Louisville's KFC Yum! Center Wednesday night when she got to meet one of her idols, Selena Gomez.
The two met backstage before the singer's concert and even danced together to Gomez's hit Love You Like a Love Song. Gomez posted a video on her Instagram page showing the two of them dancing. The video was then shared on Audrey's Facebook page.
Audrey, who lives in the Louisville suburb of Jeffersontown, is 7 years old and just two-and-a-half feet tall. She was 2 months old when she was diagnosed with Diamond Blackfan Anemia (DBA), a rare blood disease that doesn't allow her to make enough red blood cells. As a result, she is on steroids and sometimes has to get blood transfusions.
Audrey has said that Taylor Swift inspired her to start singing with a karaoke machine at home.
"Because she has all the passion and spirit, and I thought I would start singing to maybe put a little passion and spirit in me so maybe I could fight off my disease," Audrey said in May.
Her father posts videos of Audrey singing and dancing on her Facebook page, Audrey's DBA Photo Booth. Millions of people have viewed them. She's even appeared on The Rachael Ray Show twice.
Audrey is also a big fan of Selena Gomez and said in May that she wanted to meet the famous singer. She finally got her wish Wednesday night, and it looks like Gomez enjoyed herself, too.
