1. What Adam Levine did for a young fan with Down syndrome
Ten-year-old Christopher Warner’s dream came true when he met his idol, Maroon 5 frontman and "The Voice" coach Adam Levine on Monday night, March 2. But when Christopher, who has Down syndrome, was overwhelmed, he panicked and suddenly became shy so he crouched on the floor, hiding behind his mom Cecilla. Adam handled it the best way possible -— by suggesting everyone else get down on the floor, too. Christopher loves to listen and sing Maroon 5’s music, and one of his special-education teachers made a video of him gushing about Adam and singing the band’s hits, paving the way for him to get backstage passes in one of the band’s shows.
