Remember your high school talent shows? Not many people do, but one South Carolina High School will remember this year’s for a long time.

As 16 year old Frankie Antonelli, a Wando High School student with Down Syndrome, performed “While I Still Got The Time” as the last act during Wednesday night’s show, his solo suddenly became a duet about halfway through thanks to a surprise appearance from a certain Grammy-winning artist.

The amazing thing isn’t as much about Frankie’s stage partner as it is that he doesn’t skip a beat. Antonelli owns the stage like a true performer.

According to Frankie’s mom Debbie, who arranged the surprise, it was “a simple promise by a good guy to my son.” She said no one will ever know how much Rucker does for kids.
