Blake Shelton Makes Hospice Patient’s Bucket List Wish Come True
Blake Shelton made one elderly woman's wish come true earlier this week. The "Came Here to Forget" singer met with 70-year-old Brenda Roberts, who had a bucket list wish to see Shelton in concert.
The meeting with Shelton was a long time in the making, as Hospice Care Plus shared on their Facebook page.
"Friends, one of our patients, 70-year-old Brenda, has a bucket-list wish (she prefers "dream wish") to see Blake Shelton in concert," the group writes. "The good news is that we were able to partner with her nursing home to secure two tickets: one for her, and one for her daughter, who's also a nurse. But, we can't stop there. We know that it would be incredibly meaningful to her if she could meet him briefly. We've reached out to his publicist and fan club, but haven't gotten a response yet. The concert is Monday night in Nashville. Do you have any contacts in the music industry who might be able to help? Send us a message or post a comment, and let's see if we can bring the bucket-list magic for Mrs. Brenda!"
Hospice Care Plus' ask worked, as Roberts and Shelton were able to connect in person on Monday (June 6) in Nashville, Tenn. They updated their Facebook page, thanking everyone for their help with a photo of Roberts and Shelton.
"Y'all, that's Mr. Blake Shelton hugging a delighted, tearful, and very surprised Brenda Roberts. More pictures coming tomorrow. When we share them, we will also single out some very specific people, without whom our small hospice could never have done this big , bucket-list thing for this special lady. P.S. Blake Shelton, you're a hospice hero. Thank you."
