Blake Shelton Grants a Wounded Veteran’s Special Request

Blake Shelton gets the majority of his publicity from his controversial tweets and crazy Voice antics, but the country crooner is now making headlines for a very good cause and it all started on Twitter.

A war veteran named Brendan Marrocco who had recently survived a double-arm transplant told a local news agency that the first person he wanted to shake hands with was Blake.

A fan quickly informed the superstar about the veteran’s request, and he responded on Twitter, saying, “Wow.. Speechless. I will make this happen!!”

Blake followed up with Brendan Marrocco himself tweeting, “Hey Brendan @BMarr86.... I can't WAIT to shake the hand of an American Hero/Stud... You my brother.”

Needless to say, Brendan was excited.

“@blakeshelton holy mother of god!! I can’t wait I’m a huge fan and really looking forward to it. Thank you,” he tweeted.

We’re so happy Blake’s donated his time to this heart-warming event. Would you like to shake Blake Shelton’s hand? Tell us below!
