Thomas Rhett made this fan’s 26th birthday one she’ll never forget!
The country superstar shared an unforgettable moment with a 26-year-old fan at PNC Bank Arts Center in Holmdel, New Jersey on September 17 as part of his electrifying Center Point Road Tour. The fan brought a sign in hopes to grab Rhett’s attention, and it worked, as the Georgia native seen the sign and joined her and made her birthday wishes come true.
“Thomas Rhett & 16,000 people sang me happy birthday & he let me sing Star Of The Show with him,” Gia captioned a TikTok clip of the memorable evening. “BEST BIRTHDAY EVER!”
Rhett read Gia’s sign, which was handmade on a pink poster board and read, “4th show of this tour! Please make my 26th birthday wish come true, bring me on stage to sing with you!” And after Rhett read the sign, he asked the fan, “what do you want to sing?”
“First off, you ever heard 16,000 people sing happy birthday to you before?” Rhett said, before prompting the capacity crowd to sing Happy Birthday to her. “Everybody say Happy Birthday Gia,” Rhett told the massive New Jersey crowd, before having them serenade her for her birthday.
“Let’s sing this together,” Rhett told the fan before jumping off the stage and onto the barricade to join the fan.
Rhett, wearing a Dos Primos shirt, then sang his popular hit “Star Of The Show” to the fan as he held her hand and got the crowd to join in. He also passed the microphone to the fan several times, allowing her to sing with him.
“One more time for Gia, it’s her birthday,” Rhett said as he returned to the stage, and Gia was in awe of the memorable moment.
