Keith Urban Plays Secret Santa For Australian Kid

Keith Urban - CountryMusicIsLove

Keith Urban was shopping for a new guitar in his native Australia last week when he spontaneously played the part of a ‘secret Santa’ for a kid shopping in the same store. OK! Magazine reports…

“'I look up and there's Keith Urban and his band, which was quite a shock obviously,” Tym Brennan, a shop worker, told Australia's ABC Radio. “He spent about half an hour in the shop trying out guitars, and there was a kid sitting there trying out a fuzz pedal, which is an effect you get for a guitar. Keith came back down the counter and was chatting away and had picked out a guitar he liked. He had heard the kid trying out the pedal for some time and he just leaned over and whispered, “How much is the pedal that kid's looking at?” I said, “It's $450, it's not a cheap one”, and he just whispered, “Put it on my card.” Obviously I was quite shocked. I said, “Do you want me to tell him?”, and he said, “No, wait till I leave.”'

Tym said the boy was shocked when he realized what had happened.

“'He looked at me several times blankly and sort of turned a bit white,” Tym said. “After he settled down a bit he rang his dad on his mobile and said that Keith Urban had just bought him a Christmas present.'”

We’re sure Keith didn’t do this for the recognition, but major kudos go out to him for being so giving!
