Mother Monster took some time after her ARTPOP Ball tour stop at Xcel Energy Center to touch a few young lives at the St. Paul Gillette Children’s Hospital on Wednesday.

With Haus monster Emma (who was front row at the show and name dropped by Gaga on stage) in tow, Gaga spent one-on-one time and snapped a few selfies with smiling patients.

According to the hospital, Gillette staff were notified just hours before that the singer would be making an appearance at the facility. The hospital said Gaga “was a true inspiration tonight when she stopped by to visit.”
