Luke Combs Brings Young Cancer Survivor on Stage to Sing ‘Fast Car’

Luke Combs made a little boy’s dreams come true by inviting him on stage to sing ‘Fast Car.’

Cooper, a courageous eight-year-ole boy who recently beat cancer, has a deep admiration for Combs’ music, and meeting his favorite singer was at the top of his wish list. When hearing about Cooper and his goal, Combs warmly welcomed him on stage during his performance in Foxborough, Massachusetts on Saturday, July 22.

Diagnosed with leukemia at the age of three, Cooper has been courageously battling the illness, going through numerous surgeries throughout his journey.

“It was a lot. To watch your child go through what he had to go through was unbelievable,” Cooper’s mother, Melissa Massengill, said.

When Make-A-Wish caught wind of his journey, they knew they wanted to grant him the very special wish of meeting Combs in person.

“When I was walking up, everyone was shouting my name. It felt great,” Cooper said about the moment.

Cooper was definitely surprised, seeming overwhelmed with happiness as he took the stage.

“Cooper’s wish was to meet Luke Combs. He had no idea that he was going to go on stage. His secret wish, within his wish, was to sing ‘Fast Car’ with him. And Luke Combs and his team made a lifetime memory for him,” said Sean Holleran, the CEO of Make-A-Wish Massachusetts and Rhode Island.

Luke Combs will continue his 2023 World Tour with a series of exciting shows lined up until mid-October.
