It’s not too often we hear about random acts of kindness from celebrities. But this one was really cool!
According to People Mag, 16 year old Julie Fermin was browsing the guitar selections at Rudy’s Music in New York City when Mayer and his girlfriend Katy Perry entered the shop. Fermin and her friends were extremely excited to see two of their favorite artists and started freaking out. Mayer and Perry then greeted their fans and talked about their love of music. After Mayer asked Fermin how long she’d been playing and to show him which guitar she liked best, he and Perry said their goodbyes.
It wasn’t until after the couple left the store that Fermin was told Mayer had purchased the guitar for her on the way out. “I was so shocked,” says Fermin, who first picked up the instrument at age 11. “I cannot describe all the emotions I was feeling at that moment.”
