Doing the world some good!
Harry Styles changed a young girl’s life during his sold out show in Milwaukee, Wisconsin on Wednesday, November 3.
The former 1D boybander was casually singing when he spotted a sign in the audience that read “My mom is in Section 201. Help me come out.” As shared on TikTok, Styles halted the show and went over to talk to the young girl, McKinley McConnell.
“What would you like to tell your mother?,” the 27-year-old asked McConnell. “I can tell her if you’d like.”
The girl shyly admits “there’s a lot of people” in the arena, before giving Styles the go ahead to deliver the news. “I can tell her, yeah, no problem,” the crooner quipped.
Styles then sauntered to the other side of the stage and addressed McConnell’s mom — who was in a different section than her daughter. “Lisa, she’s gay!,” he shouted while the crowd erupted into applause. Lisa buried her face in her hands before lovingly blowing her daughter a kiss.
The “Watermelon Sugar” singer jokingly added, “Now, I don’t want to ruin the moment, but wouldn’t it be nice if you were a little bit closer together.”
McConnell dished to NBC News after the show why she and her mom were not seated together at the momentous show. “I literally got her the ticket so last minute,” she explained, noting they flew from Los, Angeles, Calif. for the concert. “I was lucky to get a ticket for general admission pit for myself. I know my mom, and she wouldn’t have been up for the pit.”
After her coming out, the California State University, Northridge, student explained her mom said, “You always had a flair for dramatics.”
“I’m really beyond blessed that both my parents are so supportive. And I think they probably always suspected, even though you try to act like they don’t,” she continued. “She just kept saying she loves me and is proud of me.”
