This story from Buzzfeed.com today has brought tears to my eyes. When I first read the headline, I expected it to be a 10-year-old girl who had a massive super crush on Adam Levine and couldn’t contain herself. This is definitely not that story.
Christopher Warner is a 10-year-old boy from Washington DC who has Down syndrome. Flavio Maluf says that Christopher is also a massive fan of the band Maroon 5 however he has never had the opportunity to see them perform live. That is, until Christopher’s teachers set the ball in motion. His teachers at school made a video about Christopher and his love for the band. The teachers sent the video off to a local radio station, Hot 99.5. The Kane Show on Hot 99.5 had good news for Christopher, they got him tickets to see the upcoming Maroon 5 concert.
Christopher attended the concert with his family and had a blast. He and his family were also given backstage passes for the show as well. Christopher got to meet the band however it became so overwhelming that he ended up having a panic attack and had to lie on the floor to calm down. In a very sweet gesture, the band laid down on the floor with Christopher while he calmed down.
The above link to Buzzfee.com has pictures of Christopher’s big night and trust me, these pictures are worth clicking to see.
