One Kid Rock fan just got a present he'll remember for many birthdays to come.
The Detroit star popped in on a 30th birthday party Monday for Dan McGurk, a diehard Rock fan who had been trying to get the musician's attention via letters and videos.
McGurk has Down Syndrome, according to Toledo's WTOL-TV, and had been working to get a party invitation onto Rock's radar for months.
Video of Monday night's scene was later posted to YouTube. As friends and family watch on at the Clarkston Union restaurant, McGurk lights up with surprise and delight as Rock strolls in singing "Happy Birthday."
