Kid Rock recently surprised fan Dan McGurk, who has Down Syndrome, by showing up to his 30th birthday party in Detroit. An amazing video of the moment has now been posted online.

In the clip, McGurk is seen wearing a Kid Rock shirt and singing the musician’s hit song “Bawitdaba” while enjoying his birthday with family and friends at the Clarkston Union restaurant. A longtime fan of Rock, McGurk reportedly spent months trying to get the music star to attend his party, sending Rock letters and videos demonstrating his fandom.

But McGurk didn’t know Rock was actually going to show up, until he did, in spectacular fashion, walking in and singing “Happy Birthday.” When the fan blows out the candles on his cake, he said that his wish that Rock would come had been granted.

Rock and McGurk shared a hug and conversation, and Rock gave him gifts including a signed guitar. It’s pretty fantastic. The clip captures an unforgettable experience for a diehard Rock fan who definitely deserved the huge surprise.
