Amy Shark isn’t primarily concerned with selling-out Australia’s biggest venues, rather, it’s clear she has time for everyone.

The ‘Adore’ singer revealed today that she paid tribute to a five-year-old fan known as Liam, who died in a boating accident earlier this month.

Fairfax reported that Shark surprised Liam’s family by attending the funeral yesterday, and even took the time to sing a song for him.

“This will be remembered by his family forever” said one attendee, adding that the moment was “simply incredible.”

“I decided to say goodbye to one of my biggest and youngest fans who was taken too soon,” said Shark. “A very hard day for the family….it was the least I could do.”

In a social media post, Shark paid further tribute to Liam, noting that, “I never got to meet Liam, but I will remember him and his family forever.”

Liam was reportedly wearing a life jacket when he fell into lake Eildon, a popular holiday spot in Victoria.

The family tried CPR to revive him, but sadly Liam passed away in what has been described as a ‘tragic accident.’

It was a moment of true humility for the singer, who has gone from strength to strength after the release of her debut album, Love Monster.

A true testament of character, it provides another reason why fans have every reason to get out and support Shark on her next run of dates on the Falls Festival bill.
