Adam Levine is probably used to the droves of screaming female fans, but on Monday, March 2, he met a very special supporter — 10-year-old Christopher Warner

Warner is a fourth grader with Down syndrome whose teachers created a precious video to help him score a meet and greet with Levine. The three-minute clip was posted by one of Warner’s teachers on YouTube and sent to Hot 99.5, a radio station in Washington, D.C.

“I am a special education teacher and Christopher is one of my students,” the video caption reads. “He is an amazing boy who is just like any 10 year old with an interest in pop culture. He loves listening to Maroon 5. For his informational writing project, he chose to make a poster about the band. Every day, he works to earn breaks to listen to his favorite Maroon 5 songs. I told him we could make a movie so he could let Adam Levine know about his #1 fan. This was a collaborative effort from me, my co-worker Jay Hackett, and Christopher's mother.”

In the clip, Warner runs around singing Maroon 5’s “One More Night” and offering up information about the group and his favorite singer, Levine, 35. 

The video was sent to Hot 99.5 and the station’s Kane Show managed to get the little boy and his family to the show at D.C.’s Verizon Center on Monday night. Then they brought him backstage where he, understandably, had a full-blown panic attack and was forced to lie down on the ground. 

Instead of waiting for it to pass, the entire band, including Levine, lay down on the floor with him to pose for a picture.
