SOMERS, New York — Country singer Blake Shelton is stepping up to help a die-hard fan who missed his concert earlier this year after he was involved in a life-threatening motorcycle crash.
On Nov. 7, 25-year-old Jonathan Daniels took to Facebook and asked the country star if he would give him and his girlfriend two tickets after they were forced to miss the Oct. 8 concert.
Daniels was riding his motorcycle with several friends when a car pulled out in front of him, causing him to bounce off the vehicle and into a utility pole. The wreck left him with two collapsed lungs, brain bleeding, broken bones, and a lacerated kidney, liver, and spleen.
After 15 days in the hospital, he was able to finally go home and continue his recovery.
“My girlfriend never left my side and kept praying for me and made my stay in the hospital very comforting. Now, because of this horrible accident, we were unable to make the trip to Brooklyn,” he said in the post. “It is now a couple months later and she still has to help me shower, eat, walk, drive me around to my doctor’s appointments and I was just hoping maybe you would see this letter and help me give her the birthday present she deserves. All she wants is to see you in concert.”
Last week, Shelton replied back to the Daniels’ post, offering the couple free tickets:
“I’m very sorry about the accident and I hope you recover soon,” he said in the video. “Obviously, I’m totally ready to give you tickets to whatever show you can make it too.”
He also told Daniels that he wanted to meet him and his girlfriend in person.
“It’s incredible the support we have gotten from complete strangers wanting to send us positivity, and Blake, well that’s just awesome,” girlfriend Lindsay Baker told WABC-TV.
