Gwen Stefani invites bullied boy onstage in moving, impromptu moment
Bullies don't get a pass from singer Gwen Stefani. The No Doubt singer, fashion designer and former "The Voice" judge posted a video on her Facebook page where she brought a young fan up on stage after receiving a letter that the child was bullied for several years. According to People magazine, the incident occurred during a show in West Palm Beach.
"About 3 years ago when things were hard in my life I prayed to God everyday that I could get a chance to use my gift that God gave me and make a difference in some way in this world - last night this little guy was the answer to my prayers," the singer wrote in the caption of the video. The young boy, touched by the gesture, cries during the video while the Stefani comforts him.
The singer and mother has been very candid about her heartache and recent divorce. She explained in a March 2016 issue of Us Weekly that the divorce and share custody arrangement of her own sons, Kingston, 9, Zuma, 7, and Apollo, 2 proved very difficult.
This video appears to show just a glimpse of the protective mothering side of the rock legend. Share the touching moment with friends.
