9 years old and Addi Keegan has already fighting for her life against a tumor for the last 7 years. That’s a tough life for a child. So before one of Luke Bryan’s shows (in Cleveland) on Saturday (July 15), Luke Bryan teamed up with A Special Wish to meet the inspiring klittle girl. According to Taste of Country, it just happened recently that her condition took a turn for the worse, and the Cleveland area nonprofit came up with a backup plan that meant a local band playing Luke Bryan songs in her backyard. Hours before showtime of the real Luke Bryan concert, she felt good enough to go see one of her favorite singers.
In the video below, you can see that Addi was able to talk with Luke before his show and tell him that her favorite song was “Play It Again,” and he promised that he would play the song especially for her later that night. “You better be paying attention. I’m so glad you got to come out!”
“Thank you to Luke Bryan for spending time with Addi last night before your show and for giving her a quick shout out before you sang her favorite song. She got to watch and sing along to her favorites in her own private press box,” the nonprofit writes.
