Irish boy overjoyed with surprise tickets to see his idol Bruno Mars
An Irish boy shed tears of joy when he realised he had been bought tickets to see his idol Bruno Mars.
Craig Hughes of Kildare was given the tickets as a surprise last Christmas and his joy was clear to see.
Craig was 10 at the time, and had dreamed of seeing the Hawaiian superstar singer perform live.
His dad videoed his reaction, as he read a note from Santa before opening his bag to find his Bruno Mars tickets. He then rushed over to give his mum a big hug as he was overwhelmed with emotion.
Craig’s mum Jeanette sent told the Irish Independent: “He got the tickets from his nanny in Heaven, because Craig sang Bruno Mars ‘When I was your man’ at his nanny’s burial two years ago. He said he knew his nanny would always help him.”
Craig dreams of one day being a music superstar like Mars. He attends stage school and has mastered many of the famous Bruno Mars dance routines already.
Take a look at Craig in action below. With moves like this, he could well be a star of the future.
