Garth Brooks dedicated his heartfelt song “Mom” after sharing an emotional moment with a fan who is still mourning the loss of her young son.
During his recent concert in Ottawa, Canada, he noticed a woman named Sophie holding up a sign in the audience. After urging the crowd to join him in a sing-along version of “Happy Birthday,” he enquired as to why she requested him to sing his emotional song “Mom.” Through her tears, Sophie explained that she was still mourning the loss of her three year old son Antoine.
Her story caused everyone in the arena, including Garth himself, to become teary eyed. After a video of the performance was shared on YouTube, Sophie shared a message of joy and appreciation for Brooks’ kind words and incredible performance.
“The most memorable birthday I could ever ask for,” she shared. “Thank you Garth Brooks, Gary for taking me to the show for my birthday, to the fan who took this video (I could’t even remember half of what happened. I was so stunned!) and to Antoine for showing up on my birthday in a spectacular way! I had requested to Antoine and God in a prayer before the show that Garth sings this song for me especially. I never imagined it would turnout to be such a divinely well orchestrated moment! Garth Brooks is nothing short of a class act. That is what I love the most about him, the quality of his heartfelt lyrics, his genuine love for his fans and of course, his God given talent.”
