Country crooner Garth Brooks interrupted his concert Friday night in Minneapolis to give a special gift to a deserving fan.

While performing the song “The Dance” for thousands, Brooks noticed a sign being held up by Iowan native Teresa Shaw that read, “Chemo this morning. Garth tonight. Enjoying ‘The Dance’.”

If you’re not a Garth fan, the song “The Dance” is an ode to the mixture of joy and pain we all must travail in life, still knowing that we’d never want to miss a step.

The sign moved Garth so much, that he sat down and played the song directly to Teresa. Then, overcome with emotion, Garth stopped singing and reached out to trade his guitar for the sign Teresa was holding. In addition to the priceless instrument, he offered Shaw a kiss and then rang out some words of encouragement to the entire stadium.”You have all my strength. You have everybody’s strength in here, and you will kick cancer’s a**!”

Garth Brooks’ mother and sister both died of cancer.

The poignant moment brought the entire audience to tears, and is certainly an improvement over the time Kanye recently berated handicapped members of his audience because they wouldn’t stand for him.
