Tim Tebow Belted Out ‘God Bless America’ Alongside a Fan with Special Needs (Video)
Say what you’d like about Tim Tebow, but based on the decade or so that he’s been in the public eye, he’s never once seemed to turn down a fan. So when Jillian Joyce, who is stricken with cerebral palsy, asked the former NFL star to stand alongside her while she sang, he obliged.
Here’s the moving moment, which took place at the Tampa Yankees ballpark during a recent game against the St. Lucie Mets.

The Tampa Bay Times interviewed Joyce’s mom after the performance. She said of Tebow, “He was so nice to her — he was just wonderful. When you’re a parent of a special needs person, you’re just so grateful for all that he does.”
