I don’t know much about Keith Urban but this story shows what a kind heart he has. On December 18, he gave a young boy in Brisbane, Australia quite a nice surprise!
Keith and his band were in a music store shopping for guitars when he saw a teenager playing with a guitar pedal. Before he left, he secretly bought him the item!
A store employee described the scene to Australia’s ABC Radio.
“‘I look up and there’s Keith Urban and his band, which was quite a shock obviously,” Tym Brennan, a shop worker, told Australia’s ABC Radio. “He spent about half an hour in the shop trying out guitars, and there was a kid sitting there trying out a fuzz pedal, which is an effect you get for a guitar. Keith came back down the counter and was chatting away and had picked out a guitar he liked. He had heard the kid trying out the pedal for some time and he just leaned over and whispered, “How much is the pedal that kid’s looking at?” I said, “It’s $450, it’s not a cheap one”, and he just whispered, “Put it on my card.” Obviously I was quite shocked. I said, “Do you want me to tell him?”, and he said, “No, wait till I leave.”’
Tym said the boy was shocked when he realized what had happened.
“He looked at me several times blankly and sort of turned a bit white,” Tym said. “After he settled down a bit he rang his dad on his mobile and said that Keith Urban had just bought him a Christmas present.”
Aww…a very generous gesture from Keith! Two days later, he got his own gift. A reunion with Nicole and Sunday!
