Justin Timberlake led 25,000 people in singing happy birthday to an 8-year-old boy with autism at a recent concert.

The amazing moment was caught on video (see below).

According to little Julian’s parents, going to a Timberlake concert was all he wanted for his birthday, and they obliged even though they worried it would be too adult and that his disorder might be disruptive to fellow attendees.

Except everyone around the family loved Julian (see his picture at right) — and helped get Timberlake’s attention during a quiet moment in the show.

That’s when the star performer decided to make Julian’s night.

“Everyone was embracing our boy in the way I was afraid they wouldn’t,” wrote his mom. “Here we stood while thousands of people lifted him in song to celebrate the day he came into the world 8 years ago.”
