On the first stop of her Liberation tour — her first in 10 years — Christina Aguilera had a romantic surprise planned.
‘I have a really special surprise that’s happening tonight,’ she told the audience while performing in Hollywood, Florida. ‘I wanna welcome two special people to the stage.’
Fans Mike Kontomanolis and Ben Lear came onstage, and Aguilera handed her mic to Lear.
‘Thank you for being an inspiration not only to everyone here, but to him,’ Lear told the singer, gesturing to Kontomanolis.
