AceShowbiz - Adam Levine had a sweet fan meeting with a young boy with Down syndrome. Christopher Warner is a big fan of the rock star and his teacher Avery Stanert decided to create a video to prove how much he loves Levine and his music.
"He has just been fascinated with Maroon 5 and especially Adam Levine. He loves to listen to their music during work breaks," the special education teacher told Today.com. "He draws pictures of them. He just absolutely loves them."
The YouTube video quickly went viral and caught the attention of Hot 99.5's "The Kane Show", which then helped arrange a meeting between Warner and Maroon 5. "They arranged for backstage passes and tickets," Stanert said. "They immediately called the record label and worked it out."
When the band had a concert at the Verizon Center in Washington, D.C. on Monday night, March 2, Warner, his mom and some of the school teachers got VIP access to the concert. They also met the group backstage.
But Warner was a bit nervous when meeting his idol. He crouched on the floor to hide, and Levine helped make the boy feel comfortable by suggesting that everyone lay down on the floor beside him.
"He was very shy at first. I kind of got down on the floor and he was hiding behind me," Warner's mom Cecilia told ABC News. "Then Adam said 'That's OK, we'll all get down on the floor.' It wasn't beneath him to lay down on a locker room floor with Christopher."
Kane also shared an adorable picture from the encounter on his Twitter page. "Christopher was so overwhelmed he had a panic attack so @adamlevine @maroon5 @internjohnradio laid down to take a pic," so he captioned the pic.
