Kenny G Played a Surprise Charity Concert During His Flight

Airline passengers could use a bit of good news right now, so Kenny G’s most recent adventure is a heartwarming tale: On a recent flight on Delta Airlines, he decided to give a spontaneous performance that quickly raised over $2,000 for charity (via Entertainment Weekly).

On Saturday morning, the musician boarded a flight from Tampa, Florida to Los Angeles, after performing a show in Clearwater on Friday night. He found himself seated next to a woman who explained that since the death of her daughter, she has been raising money for Relay for Life, an organization that raises money for the American Cancer Society.

It was then that Kenny G decided to use his talent and celebrity to help out, saying he’d perform on the plane if his fellow passengers could pool together $1,000 dollars for the fundraiser. It turns out they were able to more than double that, so the video below shows Kenny G making good on his word, walking up and down the aisle while playing his saxophone.

There’s nothing quite like putting your talents to use for a good cause, especially when it comes as a spontaneous moment after making a real human connection with a stranger. Hats off to the passengers as well for managing to raise so much money in such a brief period of time. This is the coolest impromptu charity event we can think of, but do you know of any other heartwarming stories like this? Sound off in the comments and let us know!
