Justin Timberlake sings 'Happy Birthday' to 8-year-old boy with autism (Video)

By Gina DiFalco,

During a tour stop in San Jose, California on Aug. 11, Justin Timberlake made a little boy’s dreams come true when he sang “Happy Birthday” to him in front of 25,000 fans.

Julian Delan, 8, who is autistic, was there with his parents. He became even more overjoyed when the entire stadium started singing along.

Julian’s mother, Marika, wrote in a blog post that fellow Timberlake fans sitting around them that she was convinced would be “totally annoyed by Julian,” got the singer’s attention.

“And then it happened. Justin Timberlake was singing Happy Birthday. They all were. The awesome grandmother of 3 sitting in front of us. The model-esque girls sitting to our right. The people sitting to our left that offered us the video that they captured of the whole thing. They were all singing. All 25,000 of them,” she wrote.

Today.com reports before launching into singing “Happy Birthday” to Julian, Timberlake engaged in some witty banter with him and even apologized for cursing earlier in the show.

He then offered, "You know what, Julian? This is for you."
