Hugh Jackman has made a Dublin child's dreams come true. The Greatest Showman star has sent a video reply to 7-year-old Emma from Lucan.
It's after Emma's mum, Jacqueline Cooney, posted a video on Twitter of her daughter singing 'A Million Dreams' from the hit musical film.
Jacqueline wrote: "Ok Twitterverse, I need your help - my little girl is obsessed with The Greatest Showman and Hugh Jackman but silly me didn't realise this in time to get tickets to his show in Dublin - so she sang this for him instead! Please help me get it to him & make my girl happy!"
