A lucky 8-year-old boy received a very special and unforgettable birthday gift. During Justin Timberlake’s San Jose concert in California, Timberlake and 25,000 fans wished Julian a very special Happy 8th Birthday.
According to Julian’s mother, Marika Rosenthal Delan, both her and her husband took their autistic son to see his favorite performer, Mr. JT himself.
Wearing a black fedora hat and JT inscribed bow tie, Julian made it his mission to get Justin’s attention, shouting to the artist that it was his birthday.
“It’s my birthday!! This is my present! This is my present! I LOVE YOU JT!!”
Although Julian’s voice wasn’t loud enough for the “Sexy Back” singer to hear, the young boy’s admiration for the artist was finally recieved thanks to the help of a couple of good samaritans.
As reminisced within the blog, The Manifest-Station, Julian’s mother recounts what happened that wonderful night.
“And at the perfect quiet moment, the group in front of us started yelling to get Justin’s attention, because despite his loud volume, Julian’s voice was not carrying.”
“Only repeating. And then before we knew what was happening, the group in front of us that had turned out to be so incredibly kind all night to our birthday boy, and these gorgeous girls who I was convinced would be totally annoyed by Julian, had captured Justin’s attention.”
“And then it happened,” Delan recalled.
“Justin Timberlake was singing Happy Birthday. They all were.”
Talk about a wonderful and heartfelt gift!
Little Julian received birthday wishes from not only Timberlake, but all 25,000 fans.
Julian’s mother wasn’t the only one speak out about that remarkable night.
The 8-year-old boy’s father had a few words to give Justin on Facebook.
“Thank you JT (Justin Timberlake) for an incredible night!! This is a moment Julian will never forget!”
