SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - A lucky teenager has a special piece of memorabilia from country music star Garth Brooks‘ concert in Sioux Falls.

Nineteen-year-old Haylie Weber and her mom were in the sixth row for Brooks‘ Saturday show at the Sanford Premier Center. They held up a sign that read “This Special Olympic athlete wants to meet Garth.”

KELO -TV reports the sign caught Brooks‘ attention and toward the end of the show he stopped, signed his guitar and gave it to Haylie. It was an emotional moment for Haylie, her mom and those around them. Haylie says it was a dream come true because she likes to play guitar and sing.

Brooks is back for another round of shows in Sioux Falls next weekend.
