This photo of what Maroon 5 and lead singer Adam Levine did for one of their young fans this week is melting hearts all over the Internet.
Christopher Warner of Maryland, who has Down syndrome, is a Maroon 5 mega-fan who likes to sing and dance to the band’s music and draw pictures of Levine.
A YouTube video that a teacher made of Christopher expressing all that Maroon 5 love went viral. The Kane Show radio program contacted the band and scored Christopher backstage VIP passes to the group’s show at the Verizon Center in Washington, D.C. on Monday, according to WUSA 9 in Washington.
But when Christopher finally got to meet Levine face-to-face, he had a panic attack and curled up on the floor next to his mom.

That’s when Levine kindly suggested that everyone else get down on the floor with Christopher.
Someone caught the loving gesture on camera.
