A father got the surprise of a lifetime when his sons got him tickets to see Janet Jackson.
KB Strawder Jr. shared his dad’s sweet reaction to finding out that he was going to see Jackson perform in Las Vegas to Twitter. Strawder and his brother got the tickets for their dad as a Father’s Day gift for a show in August.
Strawder’s video showed his father yelling and running around the living room in awe of the tickets. Rightfully so, as according to Strawder, Ms. Jackson is one of his top three favorite artists.
But the surprises weren’t over just yet.
Fast forward to August, and the dad is enjoying his time backstage when Jackson decided to creep up on him for the final surprise. The “All For You” artist shared the moment to her social media page.
“I’ve been a fan for years,” Strawder’s father was saying in the video as Janet was hiding behind him. “That was a highlight for me, just seeing her on stage.”
At that moment is when Jackson embraced the dad and left him speechless.
The brothers are in the business of surprises, as they did the same for their mom.
“My little brother and I surprised our mother with her first ever trip to New York last year and so this year we decided to do something for our dad,” Strawder told USA TODAY.
Strawder said his father’s shock still hasn’t worn off, and that he’s still just as excited as ever.
“Hopefully, sometime next year he’ll begin to calm down,” Strawder said in the email. “He’ll never stop thinking about that.”
