Michael Buble surprised an autistic fan by recording a special song for him on YouTube.com.
The Haven’t Met You Yet hitmaker was moved by the story of six-year-old Griffin Woods, who suffers from a severe form of autism and has become a big fan as his parents use the crooner’s tracks to soothe him. Buble recorded a personalised message and jingle for Woods and posted the clip on the Internet.
In the video, Buble is sat a keyboard and says, “Hi, this is a YouTube exclusive. Truth is, this is only for one dude. It’s for Griffin. Griffin, if you’re watching, it’s Michael Buble and I hear that you like watching my stuff on YouTube, so I wanted to do a song… It’s a terrible song, I’m not very good on the piano but I love you man…”
The youngster’s mother Christin, from Calgary in Canada, tells Metronews.ca, “I was laughing and crying at the same time. I was in disbelief… I couldn’t believe it. My husband was crying. We showed our therapists and they were crying.”
