Country music superstar Luke Combs invited an eight-year-old cancer survivor on stage Saturday at Gillette Stadium just outside Boston to sing an impromptu duet of “Fast Car” to a cheering audience who chanted the boy’s name.
Cooper Massengill, an eight-year-old from Georgia, was diagnosed with leukemia when he was three and has been fighting ever since, having undergone multiple surgeries, according to a report from CBS News affiliate WBZ-TV in Boston.
“I had gone through a lot of stuff, a lot of surgeries,” Cooper told the outlet.
On Saturday, Cooper was sharing the stage with Luke Combs as part of the Make-a-Wish Foundation.
This is the most heartwarming video I’ve seen in a while.
