"One of the most beautiful moments of the weekend."

Posted on

A man in a wheelchair was hoisted above the crowds at the Osheaga music festival in Montreal last weekend during a set from Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros.

As the man approached the front, singer Alex Ebert asked if he'd like to join him on stage. Ebert even headed down himself to help the man get over the security barrier.

When @EdwardSharpe asks @osheaga to crowdsurf this man & his wheelchair to stage, & sings 'If I were Free' ❤️🎶😅❤️

Jason Bajada captured the whole thing in a viral Facebook video. "One of the most beautiful moments of the weekend," Bajada wrote, saying he had tears in his eyes. Check out the full video below.
