Ninja David is at it again. And with a cute little boy, Jonah, from Make A Wish, no less.
From Deseret News:
DREAMCOMETRUE: Along with the players, Make-A-Wish recipient, six-year-old Jonah Gomez went through the line to get a ring with his favorite player, Beckerman. The festivities continued for Gomez at halftime as David Archuleta performed alongside the youngster with sickle-cell disease, even handing the microphone to the young crowd-pleasure for a few bars, becoming an instant crowd favorite.
So the big surprise… David Archuleta sang “Touch My Hand” with Jonah at the Real Salt Lake halftime!!!

Another surprise for Jonah was David Archuleta’s idea to sing with him at halftime of the game. Little Jonah had no clue until he walked to midfield, and he did such an AMAZING job!! The crowd went wild when he hit the high notes on his solo part!
