‘The Rock’ sings ‘Happy Birthday’ to 100-year-old fan in viral video

U.S. and World

(CNN/WCMH) — Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson surprised one of his biggest fans when he helped a Philadelphia woman celebrate her 100th birthday.

A friend of “Grandmom Grover” shared video of Marie Grover being serenaded by Johnson.

Jamie Klingler, a communications and events expert is friends with Grover’s granddaughter and says Grover has been one of the Rock’s biggest fans for the past three decades, according to media reports.

Klinger had tried to reach the actor through his publicist to arrange the surprise for Grover.

But it was when she tweeted Johnson that he sprang into action, recording the video.

Johnson replied the same day and tweeted, “What?? First I’m hearing of this! Who’s turning 100? Beautiful age! What do you need, Jamie?”

“I’m sending you so much love and a huge congratulations on 100 years. What an amazing life. Love you right back. You Rock, you!”

Johnson later tweeted, “Stuff like this is always the best part of fame.”
