Sometimes a song is just a song. Other times, it means so much more. That was the case at a Garth Brooks‘ concert in Minneapolis, Minnesota on November 7th.
During his performance of “The Dance,” the camera panned to a woman in the audience holding a sign, which read, “Chemo this morning. Garth tonight. Enjoying the dance.” The audience immediately erupted into cheers for the woman, who Garth soon made his way to. Halfway through the song, Garth moved to the front of the stage where he sat down and serenaded the woman, who according to comments on the video is named Teresa and is fighting breast cancer. She sings every word back to him before he ends the song, offering her a hug and the ultimate souvenir, his guitar.
He offers Teresa a triumphant fist pump and a few words of encouragement as the crowd roars. “Sometimes man, sometimes, I’m one of those guys that said, “Man, if God would just give a big old hand that comes out from the sky and write, ‘I EXIST’ then there would never be any doubt, right?” Garth proclaims, his voice cracking. “Well I want to tell you right now, God just stuck his hand out and he wrote… You have all of my strength, you have everybody’s strength in here, and you go KICK CANCERS ASS!”
The moment is so genuine, so touching… and our thoughts and prayers are with Teresa at this time. Pass the tissues, stat.
Watch the incredible moment here!
