Kenny G making Delta Air lines Passengers Happy
Kenny G, the world-renowned saxophonist, used his smooth musical skills to help a few lucky Delta Air Lines passengers have the flight of a lifetime.
On Saturday, the musician provided a little in-flight entertainment on a trip from Tampa Bay to Los Angeles. And while the performance is cool to watch, the story behind it makes it all the more touching.
Flight attendants had asked passengers to help raise $1,000 for Delta G.O. Relay for Life on the intercom, ABC reported. They added that if they surpassed that goal on the the fight, the saxophone megastar would provide an impromptu performance.
It took passengers just five minutes to help raise more than $2,000 for the American Cancer Society via the Relay for Life initiative. And luckily for them, Kenny G is a man of his word.
Following the flight, Delta tweeted at the musician to thank him for his performance to which he simply responded, “happy to help!”
However, Kenny G’s performance wasn’t the first live show to delight on an airplane. In March 2016, members of the Milan-based Golden Swing Society put on a dance show in the aisle of a Ryanair flight while en route to Milan.
And in June 2015, the casts of “Milan” and “The Lion King” had an epic sing-off in the middle of LaGuardia Airport after both their flights were delayed.
