Ten years ago, country superstar Toby Keith invited a very special singer to the stage. His name was Trevor Scott, he was dying from liver failure and thanks to the Make a Wish Foundation, Scott was not only able to meet his hero, but also sing Keith’s hit “American Soldier”with him on stage.

Keith and Scott started singing the song in unison, but just moments in Kieth realized the little guy knew every word and let him take the lead. If you watch closely, you can see Keith mouth the words “wow” and “it’s beautiful” as Scott sings. The moment obviously made a big impact on the country music star.
But that wasn’t the only amazing thing to happen to little Scott. In a wonderful turn of events, Scott’s prayers were answered just three days after this clip was shot, and he received a live-saving liver transplant.
Toby Keith didn’t stop there and continued to show his love for children and his love for his country in every way possible. Because of moments like this, Keith was recently named the recipient of the Distinguished Leadership Award which is presented annually to “remarkable individuals who represent the four pillars of global leadership — political, military, business and artistic.”Keith certainly embodies everything the award is meant to honor.
Check out the life changing moment for both of these guys in the video below.
