Talk about dreams coming true! This young woman with Down Syndrome stood on stage, beside country superstar Kenny Chesney, and bared her heart in front of thousands of people in the audience. It was incredibly touching, folks.
With microphone in hand, the young lady says, “Just want you to know Kenny Chesney is my true love. He inspires me and I’m gonna kiss him right now on the lips.” Kenny doesn’t hesitate before wiping the sweat off of his face, which is a kind gesture in itself, and plants a kiss right on her lips! And the crowd goes wild.
It’s obvious how much that simple kiss meant to her. Kenny is all smiles, thanking her for coming up onto the stage with him, but she isn’t done! He hands her back the microphone and what she says next is both heartbreaking and inspiring. “His music helped me through the toughest time,” she says. “He inspired me when I was 15 years old when I got abused. The reason why I got on stage – it was my grandfather’s dream to see me up here.”
A few hugs and kisses later, Kenny points to the young woman and says, “That’s why we write songs – right there!”
Isn’t it just?
