Gwen Stefani was performing at a show in Florida when a sign caught her attention in the crowd. The singer surprised everyone by taking it in her hands and reading it out loud.
The words were written by a mom. And they were heartbreaking.
“My son was bullied from 1st to 5th grade,” Stefani read. “He would come home every day upset, but he would go to his room, listen to your music and smile.”
She was so touched that she just had to do something in response.
“Get up here right now!” she yelled to the mom’s son.
Of course, the young boy was more than happy to take her up on her offer–and the warm embrace she gave him right on stage.
