Keith Urban Makes 14-Year-Old Girl's Singing Dreams Come True On Stage

Hailey Benedict, we're looking forward to great things from you.


Keith Urban made dreams come true for a 14-year-old singer-songwriter in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, last weekend. According to CBC, Urban noticed Hailey Benedict — who was with her mother and sister McKenna in the crowd of 20,000 at Rogers Place last Friday night — after spotting the girls' brightly decorated signs.

That's when the 48-year-old country superstar invited the girls on stage.

"What's the dream job in (your) life?" Urban asked Benedict.

"I want to be a singer-songwriter," Benedict told Urban, who responded with an enthusiastic "Yes!"

That's when Urban called for a guitar, set it up for Benedict, and gave her the stage where she sang one of her own songs, "Clean Slate," for a roaring audience of thousands. Although she was clearly a little nervous, she held it together with all the professionalism and cool of a stage veteran.

"I just soaked it all in, its been one of my dreams since I was little, to look out at a crowd that big and sing one of my own songs. So the fact that one of my dreams was happening I just took every little bit in," Benedict told CBC.

Her mother, Brandee Benedict, described the feeling of seeing her daughter's dreams come to life.

"There was so much excitement in the moment, that it was hard not to get caught up in the emotion of it," she told CBC. "It was extreme, I actually even had to stop for a moment and go sit down in my seat because I felt I had to take notice of my breath or else I was going to faint. ... It was hard not to be so overwhelmed and so excited about what was happening, to get to see your kid's dreams come to fruition."

Since we're always interested in seeing people's dreams come to fruition, here's "Clean Slate" by Hailey Benedict.
