Gwen Stefani invited a young fan onstage at her Wednesday night concert in Florida after she read a sign from the boy's mom describing how her son got through the pain of bullying with Stefani's music. It took all of two seconds for Stefani's heart to melt, and she immediately said to the kid "get up here right now!"
It didn't take long for the crowd to help hustle him up to the stage, and a security guard got him to the awaiting embrace of Stefani. From there he was all smiles and tears:
About 3 years ago when things were hard in my life I prayed to God everyday that I could get a chance to use my gift that God gave me and make a difference in some way in this world - last night this little guy was the answer to my prayers 🙏🏻 #zerotoleranceforbullies #onelove #thisiswhatthetruthfeelslike Gx

Hopefully he has less trouble with bullies as he gets older. And if times get tough, he can always go to Instagram and watch himself wrapped in Stefani's arms in front of a screaming crowd. Not too shabby.
