Ciara helped out an aspiring singer at a charity event in New York on Tuesday night (26Oct10) by taking her to one side and giving her some advice on breaking into the music industry.
The pop star made an appearance at the Lord & Taylor store in Manhattan for a party benefiting VH1's Save the Music Foundation and the night saw performances from a number of music students.
And when Ciara spotted one hopeful "looking upset", she took the girl to one side and allowed her to sing a song in private, before handing out some words of wisdom.
A source tells New York Post gossip colum Page Six, "She noticed one student looking upset... Ciara took her into a nearby bathroom for a one-on-one performance of Over the Rainbow."
