One Direction perform for terminally ill teenage fan

Boy band One Direction thrilled a terminally ill teenage fan last month (Mar13) by staging an intimate mini-gig in Liverpool, England.

The What Makes You Beautiful hitmakers teamed up with the Rays of Sunshine charity, which grants the wishes of sick children, to surprise Hannah Booth, who is battling bone cancer.

The 18 year old, who was told last year (12) the disease is terminal, was expecting the five-piece to just pose for a picture with her - and she was left stunned when they performed several of their hit songs.

Booth tells Britain's The Sun, "I thought I was just going to get a few minutes with the boys to shake their hand and have a picture taken with them. This is beyond anything I could have dreamed of. To be just yards from them as they sang was just magical."

The group has previously organized a day out in London for a group of sick children through the charity.
