Little Gavin completely stole the show (and Steve Harvey’s heart) on “Little Big Shots.”
The young boy, who was born with a rare form of blindness, warmed America’s heart with his beautiful rendition of “The Star-Spangled Banner.”
The sweetest moment in the show came when Gavin told the host, “I love you.”
Harvey couldn’t hold back and hugged him, saying “I love you” back.
He told Gavin all the reasons why he loves him, saying,”You judge people for who they are, not what they look like, so already you know how to judge people the right way. See, most people don’t have that type of soul. They are so busy looking at them and coming away with the wrong opinion without even getting to know the people.”
“The second reason I love you, man is because you are brave,” Harvey said. “You came out here and you ain’t letting nothing stop you. And the third reason I love you is because you are seven years old and you have a 15-year-old girlfriend!”
Gavin squealed out a giggle in response as the audience cheered for him.
15-year-old girlfriend? Hmmm. OK, more power to you, Gavin.
As a special treat for the audience, Gavin decided to sing the national anthem. If you’ve ever been to any kind of game where some local or national celebrity tried to sing the Star Spangled Banner, you know it’s one tough song to sing!
What an inspiring little boy! Kudos kiddo!
