They say you never forget your prom, right? Well, country star Hunter Hayes made the prom a little more memorable for one young lady by making her wish come true.
Rachel Rogers, a member of the Tennessee Chapter of Best Buddies—an organization that works to pair people with intellectual and developmental disabilities with a buddy their own age—was excited about the organizations upcoming annual prom held Friday night (Feb. 16) at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena.
Rachel wanted to ask her celebrity crush, Hunter Hayes, to be her date for the big event. After Rachel made a video asking Hunter to the prom, it somehow got into his hands.
And this happened.
Hunter surprised Rachel on stage and the two performed his 2012 hit, “Wanted,” together. There was not a dry eye in the house.
The 26-year-old singer knew after seeing the video Rachel had made, that he would definitely be attending the prom. Also attending the prom was country singer Drake White, Brandi Cyrus (Yes, Miley’s sister), NHL players Pekka Rinne and Roman Josi from the Nashville Predators and Bachelorette alum Vanessa Grimaldi.
This isn’t the first time the Best Buddies prom has been crashed by a country crooner. Last year Brett Eldredge showed up to surprise his buddy Matt. Brett couldn’t make it out to the prom this year, because he is currently out on the Country Music Freaks Tour with Blake Shelton, but he did send in a video telling everyone to “boogie down.”
