Forget the glitz and the glamour -- the best asset that a celebrity can have is a heart of gold. Selena Gomez proved that to be true with her recent visit to Children's Hospital Los Angeles.

The 'Rudderless' actress Instagrammed several sweet pictures of herself with patients, which you can check out above and below. She even showed her support for one in particular by wearing a 'Team Connor' bracelet.

"Selena took the time to stop and visit with each one, hear their stories, give hugs, share laughs and provide encouragement," the hospital told E! News. "It was a much-needed lift for these children and their families during an incredibly difficult time." So moving.

Of course, Selena Gomez joins pal Taylor Swift, on-and-off boyfriend Justin Bieber and many more in the ranks of celebs who have warmed countless patients' hearts by surprising them in the hospital. That's what it means to be an artist who gives back.
