Sexy singer Gwen Stefani made a fan's dream come true when she took her to this year's (13FEB05) Grammy Awards.

The mother of Ohio native ABBEY, a lifelong fan of the No Doubt frontwoman, wrote to talk show titan Oprah Winfrey begging for her diabetic daughter to be chosen to meet with Stefani.

Abbey, an art instructor for mentally disabled and autistic adults, was quickly whisked off to Los Angeles, where she was treated to a make-over from Stefani's hair stylist and make-up artist.

Abbey was then handed a VIP pass to the star-studded ceremony, where she met and chatted with celebrities including Billy Bob Thornton, Joss Stone, Queen Latifah and Stevie Wonder before coming face-to-face with her idol Stefani.

The singer says, "I'm here today because of people like her that actually gave me this unbelievable career of being creative and making music."
