Gwen Stefani gave one young fan a night he’ll never forget during her concert in West Palm Beach, Florida, on Wednesday.
Between songs, the singer grabbed a letter from a woman in the front row and started reading out loud.
“My son was bullied from first to fifth grade,” she read, letting out a horrified “What?!” She continued reading, “He would come home every day upset, but he’d go to his room, listen to your music, and smile.”
Before she could even finish reading the note, Stefani demanded the boy “get up here right now.” Once onstage, she hugged the clearly overwhelmed and emotional fan, triumphantly raised his arms in the air, and shared some private words of encouragement with him while the crowd cheered on.
After the show, Stefani shared video of the touching moment on Instagram, writing, “About 3 years ago when things were hard in my life I prayed to God everyday that I could get a chance to use my gift that God gave me and make a difference in some way in this world - last night this little guy was the answer to my prayers 🙏🏻 #zerotoleranceforbullies #onelove #thisiswhatthetruthfeelslike”
She also shared a selfie of the fan and his family backstage, captioning it with just one simple, completely accurate hashtag: “#cuteness.”
