A Young Kane Brown Fan Beat Cancer, So the Star Wanted to Celebrate [Watch]
Kane Brown gave an extra special fan a concert she'll never forget on Saturday (Feb. 23).
According to her mother, Amaya is three years cancer-free, and she has been a fan of the country star for some time, even previously attending Brown's shows and singing his songs in videos posted to her mother's Twitter account. But when it was time to get ready for Brown's 2019 Live Forever Tour stop in Youngstown, Ohio, Amaya also armed herself with markers and a poster board to make a sign that read:
"Kane, I kicked cancer's butt!"
It worked. Amaya caught Brown's attention from the crowd, and he brought her to the stage to dance to his cover of Marshmello and Bastille's "Happier." The country star shared a video of the experience on his official Twitter account.

Later, Amaya told her mother that this "made her entire life." Thankfully, she was able to tell him, speaking to Sirius XM with a personal message for Brown, thanking him for the experience.
The 10-year-old beat Leukemia in 2013 and has been in remission ever since.
Brown has been doing various covers on his 2019 tour, creating a mashup of non-country songs to give his live show something extra — something appealing for all types of fans.
"I really do that for the people who don't listen to country music or maybe this is their first country concert," Brown tells Taste of Country in a recent interview. "That cover mashup really gets the crowd wound up. I feed off the energy I get through them."
Brown is currently on his headlining Live Forever Tour, but this summer he will hit the road on Jason Aldean's 2019 Ride All Night Tour with Carly Pearce.
