A little boy from Ocala got the chance to meet his favorite singer, Kelsea Ballerini, and received a HUGE surprise…

A Florida Boy’s, Ayden, who is blind and battling brain cancer, dream came true and met Kelsea Ballerini when she was in town performing at St. Augustine Amphitheater in April of this year. Ayden shared with Kelsea how he loved music and wanted to learn to play the guitar.

That alone is such a memorable moment but the surprises DID NOT end there. This next part of the story is  incredible and you might need some tissues…. Months later a surprise came in the mail for Ayden…

This week, Ayden got a surprise package from Kelesea Ballerini, inside was his very own electric guitar with his name engraved in it, and also written out in Braille.

There was also a note inside:

“Ayden, meeting you in St. Augustine really touched my heart and I wanted to get you a special guitar to encourage you to keep playing and using your gift. All my love, Kelsea.”

Check out the moment he received the package below:
