Adam Levine Handles 10-Year-Old's Panic Attack Like a Pro

Adam Levine, of 'The Voice' and Maroon 5, meets fan with Down syndrome

If you already count yourself among Adam Levine's expansive fan base, just wait until you hear how he responded when a young fan panicked upon meeting the iconic star of "The Voice" and rock band Maroon 5.

Christopher Warner, a 10-year-old Maroon 5 fan with Down syndrome, scored tickets and backstage passes to see Levine and Co. play in Washington, DC.

"He has just been fascinated with Maroon 5 and especially Adam Levine," special education teacher Avery Stanert said, according to USA Today. "He loves to listen to their music during work breaks. He draws pictures of them. He absolutely loves them."

And he got to meet them in person after the show — an experience that left him starstruck and a bit panicked. When Warner went to the floor and hid near his mom, Levine took the initiative to do the same and asked others to join in. No stranger to fans in awe, the 35-year-old singer-songwriter showed some offstage heart and likely made Christopher feel a little more at home.

"He's an awesome kid," Maroon 5 keyboardist PJ Morton said, according to ABC News. "He was a little shy from all of the attention. He didn't want to stand up to take a picture, so we all got on the floor with him to take it that way. I got a high five!"

Warner, who has Down syndrome, landed the tickets when local station Hot 99.5's The Kane Show saw video of him singing some of the band's hits.

Down syndrome occurs when someone is born with an additional copy of the 21st chromosome. According to the National Down Syndrome Society, about 6,000 babies are born with Down syndrome each year, and there are around 400,000 Americans living with the condition.

Stanert — Warner's teacher — helped make the video and got to attend the show along with Warner.

"He's a typical 10-year-old boy," she said. "He loves music, he loves drawing, he loves his friends. He's just a very caring, really amazing boy. And so is his twin brother. His whole family is really great."

Turns out Levine is pretty great, too.
