Kid Rock's Encounter With Boy Is Going Viral

Daniel remembers how happy he was when his favorite rock star Kid Rock surprised him. But this time, it was the superfan’s turn to return the favor. In 2014, Kid Rock showed up to Daniel’s 30th birthday party to sing him Happy Birthday and shower him with gifts.

This time, Daniel would surprise Kid Rock with a gift of his own.

Anheuser-Busch distributor Jim Waller told Rare Country that he sent for Daniel to surprise Kid Rock before his June 25 show at the Bud Light Concert Series & Limelight’s Tailgate N’ Tallboys Music Festival in Illinois.

“Kid once surprised him, so they loved the idea of being able to surprise him and return the favor,” said Waller.

Daniel snuck backstage where he would present Kid Rock with a present.

“They greeted each other with big hugs, just like old high school buddies would do,” said Jim. “But then, Dan gave him a St. Michael medal in remembrance of Kid Rock’s former assistant [Mike Sacha, who passed away as a result of an ATV accident earlier this year.] And when Kid Rock came out to play, there the medal was, hanging around his neck.”

Waller says that Daniel, who has Down Syndrome, was the true rock star of the night.

“He is a gift to the world,” he said. “He truly blew me away.”
