Adam Levine’s Wisconsin Make-A-Wish Outshines Halftime Show
There are all kinds of social media chatter about Super Bowl LIII's halftime show, mostly negative. Before deciding an opinion of the main act, Maroon 5, read this. And, no, this is not related their collaborative donation to Boys & Girls Club of America.
A Milwaukee news anchor shared a story of Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine exceeding expectations when it came to a young fan in Wisconsin. The young girl, Sarah, was very ill with cancer and wanted to go to Italy as part of her Make-A-Wish but doctors said it wasn't possible for health reasons. Her next wish was to meet Adam Levine and the rest of Maroon 5, scheduled to perform at Summerfest. Oh, the show was THAT night. The folks at Make-A-Wish contacted Adam Levine and there was never apprehension of getting her to the show. Although he was delightfully surprised he was her on her bucket list.
Fox6Now's Ted Perry shares the story much better than I can.
That saddest part of that story is one line. "Sarah died early the next day." No child should have to experience cancer and death.
This isn't Adam Levine's only act of kindness, he's a very charitable and caring man. One of the most talked about deeds was paying for The Voice winner Christina Grimmie's funeral after she was brutally murdered during a meet-and-greet after one of her concerts.
