Paul McCartney grants teen's wish for birthday hug

Saturday, July 27, 2013

A Nova Scotia teen received a once-in-a-lifetime birthday gift Tuesday at the Paul McCartney concert in Quebec City. Megane Rand says The Beatles are her all-time favourite band and it was surreal to see McCartney in concert. But her night took an exciting twist after she flashed a homemade sign from her spot on floor. The music legend spotted Rand’s sign, asking him for a birthday hug. She couldn’t believe it when he offered to grant her wish.

“I was freaking out! You know, it was Paul McCartney!” says the 13-year-old Kentville resident. “He said ‘um, well, it’s either you come up here, or I’m coming down there’ as a joke because I was frozen on the spot.” Randmade her to way to stage where she received a hug from McCartney. He also gave her an autograph and serenaded her with a rocking rendition of The Beatles “Birthday” song. “I don’t remember it very much because it was like a dream!”
