Lady Gaga Surprises 12-Year-Old Special Needs fan by Bringing Him on Stage

As the saying goes, you should never meet your heroes. Why? After building up these people in your head, you're likely to be severely let down and underwhelmed by the experience. However, there are always plenty of exceptions to the rule.

During a Lady Gaga concert in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, a 12-year-old boy with special needs was treated to an experience of a lifetime.

A clip posted to YouTube begins with the singer standing at the end of the stage as she asks, ”Owen, do you want to come on stage for real?”

Two security guards and Lady Gaga then work together as they bring the mega fan up on the stage. The “Poker Face” singer gives young Owen an embrace and carefully helps place him on the piano bench, the clip shows

Lady Gaga then confesses to the crowd that “Owen is very special to me. He’s family around here and we love him so much and we’re so happy you’re at this show.”

The singer and actress performs her massive hit, “Million Reasons.” After she sings a couple of lines and while still playing the piano, Lady Gaga informs the child, “You know Owen, everybody in this room loves you.”

Then, around the 3-minute mark, Lady Gaga grabs young Owen and sits him on her lap. Near the 4:45-minute mark, the singer shifts Owen around again. She puts him on the bench and places her hat on his head. The entertainer then climbs up onto the piano. 

While standing on the piano, Lady Gaga tells the crowd: “Owen has a rare form of Autism. I need you to put your hands together right now!”

The clip shows that Gaga assists in returning Owen to his original spot in the crowd. But the one-in-a-lifetime performance is not done yet!

While standing on the piano Lady Gaga tells the crowd that we all have a responsibility to protect and help those who suffer from disabilities.

“Mental illness and invisible illness is something we cannot shy away from. We have to be very protective of one another and pay attention,“ Lady Gaga says

The clip concludes with the singer telling the crowd goodnight as she descends into the floor atop the piano. 

Owen is considered nonverbal, according to his mother. He has been a fan of Lady Gaga for years. His mother claims Owen's favorite songs are “Just Dance,” “Born This Way” and “Paparazzi.”

Colossians 3:12 “Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, long-suffering.”
