WATCH: Maren Morris Has Incredibly Wholesome Moment With Young Superfan

by Blake Ells

Maren Morris stopped by TODAY on Thursday to perform for an outdoor crowd. The visit offered more than Maren Morris expected, as she got to meet one of her biggest fans. A young girl named Lily, who is blind, was in the front row singing along with every word that Morris sang. They shared a touching moment. Check out the video below.

Host Savannah Guthrie led Maren over to Lily and introduced the two.

“Maren, this crowd loves you,” Guthrie said. “And there’s a little girl in the front row singing all of your songs. Can you come over and meet Lily with me?”

Guthrie then leads Maren Morris into the crowd while letting Lily know that they are approaching.

“We are coming to see you,” she told the girl as they walked off the stage. “Lily knows every one of your songs. Lily is blind, but boy can she hear you. This is Maren Morris.”

Maren Morris then asks Lily if she signed her guitar pick. Lily wastes no time in expressing her admiration and gratitude to Morris.

“Thank you so much for that guitar pick,” Lily says. She then reveals that she is from New York, a hometown fan. Then Lily has some questions for her favorite musician.

“What is Hayes’s favorite song of yours and how is he doing?” Lily asks of Morris’s infant.

“He’s good,” Morris replies. “I think he’s home watching right now. I hope. I’m gonna say ‘Hummingbird’ because it’s about him.”

“He’s on it!” Lily interjects. “And guess what? I own the record and his name is on it!”

The pair part ways, but Maren Morris assures Lily that she’ll know the next song.

“‘My Church!'” Lily exclaims.

Morris lets her know that she’s right, then asks for a photo op with Lily.
