Motueka local and Celine Dion super fan gets a special surprise after missing out on tickets

Canadian superstar Celine Dion is bringing her world tour our way in August and to celebrate TVNZ 1's Seven Sharp hunted down arguably her biggest Kiwi fan.

Kat Bradley is so devoted to the singer she has a reminder of the Canadian superstar forever etched into her skin in the form of a massive tattoo.

The inking contains the lyrics to Dion's song Goodbye's the Saddest Word.

"Every time I hear it I think of my mum," Kat told Seven Sharp.

Unfortunately for Kat when tickets were released to Dion's Auckland shows despite her best efforts she missed out on getting one.

The story has a happy ending though, with Seven Sharp gifting the super fan with three tickets to see her idol.

For Kat, Celine Dion's music goes more than skin deep, and it's helped her through some tough times. Source: Seven Sharp
