U2 send fan letters to their favourite singers.

The 'One' hitmakers delighted Scottish star Amy MacDonald when they sent her a hand-written request for a meeting at a recent awards ceremony.

Speaking ahead of her performance for the Absolute Radio sessions at London's Hard Rock Café, Amy told BANG Showbiz: "I met U2, they sent me a letter to my dressing room, we were doing an awards ceremony. It said, 'To Amy, come and say hello to your fan club' and was signed by all of U2! I was like 'Wow'.

"I've still got the letter, I had it framed."

Despite enjoying every minute of the encounter, the 'Don't Tell Me That It's Over' singer admits she couldn't wait to say goodbye to the rockers - because she wanted to tell her loved ones all about it.

She added: "I was there in the dressing room, Bono was pouring me a glass of wine and we were having a conversation abut my videos - they knew all my music, I couldn't believe it.

"I couldn't wait to get out of there so I could tell everyone - I was like, 'Yeah, alright, can I get out of here now and go phone my mum?' "

Listen to Amy's Hard Rock Café performance on Geoff Lloyd's Hometime show on Absolute Radio today (08.03.10).
