Justin Timberlake sings ‘Happy Birthday’ to autistic fan in crowd

By Rachel Karach,

Justin Timberlake made a young fan’s night at a concert this week when he and 25,000 fans sang ‘Happy Birthday.’

According to Gossip Cop, all 8-year-old Julian Delan wanted for his birthday was to attend a Justin Timberlake concert. Julian has autism, which makes large crowds and loud noises especially overwhelming for him.

Julian’s parents relented and took him to see Timberlake as part of his special birthday celebration. Even though his parents were reportedly concerned that his disorder could have made the evening a little complicated, fellow concert-goers couldn’t get enough of him!

ABC News reports that nearby fans helped get Timberlake’s attention and what happened next helped make Delan’s night extraordinary.

Timberlake decided to lead the audience in a moving rendition of “Happy Birthday” dedicated to Julian.

"Justin Timberlake was singing Happy Birthday. They all were," said Mrs. Delan. "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."

What a special night! Happy birthday, Julian Delan!
