Shane Filan honours fan at the Heroes of Youth awards.

Shane Filan honoured a young fan this week at Heroes of Youth Awards.The heartwarming event was held  at The MAC theatre in Belfast and is sponsored by Belfast Live.

Latasha Moore ,14 is a huge fan of Shane, she was being honoured with the  Young Carer of the Year award. Latasha who is from Co Armagh  had to look after her whole family when Mum Leanne became extremely sick, Latasha  looked after her dad Robin who is profoundly deaf and her three younger siblings who say she is like a “second mummy.”

 When it was Latasha’s turn to be presented with her award, Latasha who looked absolutely stunning in a Black and White dress, seemed a bit shocked that she had won the award for looking after her family,and even more so to receive a video message from her idol.

Her Mum and brother hugged her as she stood and watched the personal message from Shane.

Shane said in the video :

“Hi Latasha, I wanted to send a video because I heard you are a big fan. Congratulations on your amazing achievement and award.

“I hope to meet you some day soon. In the meantime say hello to everybody. See you soon.”

Congratulations on your award Latasha, we all hope you get to meet Shane some day soon! Are you as moved as we are by Latasha getting a message from Shane? Let us know in the comments below or over on @CelebMix !
