AceShowbiz - Blake Shelton has raised the spirits of a 6-year-old fan who needs a heart transplant. When performing at Choctaw Casino & Resort in Durant, Oklahoma, the country star set aside time to bring Wyatt McKee onstage.
"The Voice" coach invited the kid, who attended the Saturay, January 29 concert with his mom Harley McKee, after noticing his homemade signs. The first note read, "Your smallest biggest fan from Lake Texoma, 6 years old, waiting on a heart transplant."
"Think y'all are having a bad day, put that into perspective right there, man," the husband of Gwen Stefani later told the crowd as he kneeled next to the boy. "The next note he has on here, he asks if he can sing this song with me."
Blake and Wyatt later sang the kid's favorite song "God's Country". Following their duet, the singer gave the young boy a hug, prompting the audience to errupt in cheers and give them applause.
After the show, Wyatt's mom Harley McKee took to her Facebook account to thank Blake. Sharing a video from the event, she gushed, "I don't know if Blake Shelton will ever see this but I just want to let him know he is awesome and officially my favorite person he absolutely made Wyatt's day."
"thank you so much to him and everyone who stopped us to tell him how great he was on stage and told him they are praying for him!!!" the proud mom further raved. "Definitely a night to remember!!! #WyattStrong."
Wyatt was born with hypoplastic left heart syndrome, a condition where the left side of his heart does not grow. The young boy reportedly has already had two open-heart surgeries and now he is waiting for a donor for a heart transplant. Upon learning of his condition, a Good Samaritan gave him and his mom free tickets to Blake's show.
