January 19th, 2013 will be a night Angel and her parents will never forget thanks to George Strait. The singer, who is currently on his “Cowboy Rides Away” tour, took time out of his day to make the day of someone else. Angel is a 16 year old with severe cerebral palsy and brain damage who happens to love George Strait.
Angel is not really able to do much besides watch T.V. and listen to music and George Strait always makes her face light up. Back in 2006 Angel’s parents heard that George Strait was coming to town and they decided to contact his management team. They sent the family an autographed picture as well as tickets to the show. In between that show and now Angel’s love for George never ceased. She watches “Pure Country” repeatedly with her parents, always smiling whenever she sees or hears good ole King George.
Angel has been a fan for years, and just a few weeks ago her dream came true. When George Strait blew through Oklahoma City Angel and her family were George’s invited personal guests to the show. The family got floor seats to the show and Angel got to go back stage and hang with her favorite singer. This was really a moment this family will never forget. Angel’s dad said,
They say good things come to those who wait, and Honestly I believe that is true, George Strait may not be touring anymore after 2014 but he is leaving the music industry just as he came into it a class act, a decent, honorable person, he and his management took a dream that was 7 years in the making and made it a reality for my Daughter Angel and for that my wife and I shall always be grateful.”
It is always great to hear touching stories like this and we appreciate this family sharing their story with us. We also have to give kudos to Mr. George Strait for his kind heart. The family likes referring to their special night as the night “A King met an Angel.”
