A young man with Down’s syndrome had the best day of his life after a surprise meeting in a drug store.
Anthony Yorfido tried to get tickets to an Aerosmith show in Ontario, but was heartbroken when they were sold out. A week later as he was walking into a drug store, Anthony and his mother saw a limo sitting out front and a famous face was inside, looking for a back brace.
His mother said that Anthony was shocked to see the rock star, “He goes, ‘Oh, my God! Steven Tyler, is that you?'”
Anthony ran right up to Steven and gave him an enormous hug. Steven hugged him right back, kissing him and his mother and asked if they would be going to his show.
When Anthony’s mother told Steven that tickets had sold out, he was quick to reply, "Oh, don’t worry about that, you guys are coming with me. I’ll get you backstage passes.” But that’s not where Steven’s kindness ended.
That’s Anthony up there rocking with his new best friend and rock legend, Steven Tyler. Anthony had the night of his life in front of thousands of screaming fans. He’ll no doubt remember that night for the rest of his life.
