Jack Black recently serenaded a young School of Rock fan receiving end-of-life care with an impromptu performance of a song from the film.

The actor and Tenacious D singer-guitarist was in attendance at the Layla Paige and Friends Walk for TrinityKids Care, a fundraiser event for a hospice program providing end-of-life care to children in Southern California.

A video from the October 8th event sees Black being introduced to Abraham, a 15-year-old receiving palliative care for a rare mitochondrial disease called Pearson syndrome. A huge School of Rock fan, Abraham tells Black that his favorite song from the film is “In the End of Time.” Black then gets down on a knee, level with Abraham, and busts into an impromptu rendition of “In the End of Time (The Legend of the Rent),” much to the delight of the young fan.

“It’s almost been a week since the meet and Abraham is still talking about how he got to meet Jack,” said Abraham’s mother Veronica [via Upworthy].

The clip of Jack meeting Abraham has made the rounds on social media, with many praising the actor for his thoughtfulness.
