WASHINGTON — Adam Levine and Maroon 5 made a dream come true for a 10-year-old boy with Down syndrome.

Christopher Warner could easily be Maroon 5’s No. 1 fan. From singing their songs to drawing pictures of them, Christopher can hardly stop raving about his favorite band. One of his teachers at West Friendship Elementary School in Maryland even created a video of him gushing about Levine and singing the band’s hits.

The video went viral, and reports that a local radio host helped get the video into the right hands before Maroon 5 played in nearby Washington, D.C.

Christopher, his mom Cecilia and a few of Christopher’s teachers got VIP treatment at the Maroon 5 concert at Verizon Center. But when Christopher was face-to-face with Levine backstage, he panicked, hid behind his mom and crouched down onto the floor. That’s when Levine suggested everyone else get on the floor, too.

“We’ve been really happy to see how Down syndrome has gotten a lot of attention for this,” special education teacher Avery Stanert told “Kids with Down syndrome are just like their peers.”
