Brett Young Serenades Young Fan in Birthday Surprise [Watch]
Brett Young gave a young fan a birthday surprise she’ll never forget. The country star showed up at a young fan’s house to serenade her on her birthday, and he captured the moment in a heartwarming video he posted to social media on Friday, February 18.
In the clip below, a young fan named Abbie celebrates her birthday with her family and friends, and the fun party decorations include a life-size cutout of Young, causing her to exclaim in surprise when she sees for the first time.
“I wanted to see what would happen if the real me showed up,” Young says in voiceover as he enters the room by surprise in the video, prompting screams of excitement. He carries a white acoustic guitar, and as the clip progresses, he performs a simplified rendition of his hit song “Lady.”
“I remember when I first heard your heartbeat / It had only been eight weeks / Standing there staring at that screen / That was the first time you scared me,” he sings, his voice echoing through the kitchen and family room as Abbie, her friends and family watch intently.
“We told them it would be on Zoom, and I think they were all a bit shocked,” Young says, and it certainly seems like it as his young audience listens with rapture.
As the video explains, Abbie originally wrote to the singer and invited him to her party. He was too busy to attend, so it was decided that she would have to settle for the cutout — or so she thought, until Young himself walked in.
“It was. Amazing,” Young wrote under her Instagram post. “It was nice meeting you, Abbie!”
Young launched his country career in 2016, when he released his debut single, “Sleep Without You.” Since then, he’s scored a string of No. 1 hits, including “In Case You Didn’t Know,” “How I Loved You,” “Mercy,” and more. “Lady” reached No. 1 in 2020.
Young’s current single is “You Didn’t”, which appears on his 2021 album. Weekends are a little different these days.
