Gwen Stefani brought a recent concert to a stop after spotting a heartbreaking poster being held up in the crowd.

The No Doubt star was performing in Florida, when she noticed a mum near the front holding a large banner.

Stefani asked to have a closer look, and read the card aloud to the audience:

“My son was bullied from 1st to 5th grade. He would come home every day upset, but he would go to his room, listen to your music and smile.”

The singer demanded the woman’s little boy jump on stage with her.

The mum-of-three gave the excited boy a pep-talk away from the microphone.

Stefani later shared the video of the special moment on Facebook, saying while her music might have helped the young man, it was her fans that helped her through tough times.

“About 3 years ago when things were hard in my life I prayed to God everyday that I could get a chance to use my gift that God gave me and make a difference in some way in this world – last night this little guy was the answer to my prayers ‪#‎zerotoleranceforbullies‬ ‪#‎onelove‬ ‪#‎thisiswhatthetruthfeelslike‬ Gx,” she wrote.
