“My dream is to have a Gibson Les Paul guitar,” Brazilian 16-year old Gabriel, diagnosed with malignant neoplasm in bones, said. Gabriel is a true rock and roll music fan and loves to play guitar accompanied by his father and his uncle.
He already has a guitar, but his dream had always been to own a Gibson Les Paul Custom Ebony Guitar, the same instrument his rock and roll heroes play.
In an effort to help make Gabriel’s dream come true, Gibson Brands joined forces with the Brazilian chapter of the Make-A-Wish® Foundation, which grants wishes to children with a life-threatening medical condition.
During the 34th anniversary of the Make-A-Wish Foundation in Sao Paulo, Gabriel was invited onstage, where Sepultura’s Andres Kisser was waiting for him with his new Gibson Les Paul Custom Ebony Guitar. Gabriel hugged and kissed the guitar, and then joined Kisser, his dad and his uncle on a heartfelt live performance.
“My family has no words to thank Make-A-Wish Brazil, Andreas of Sepultura, Gibson Brands and everyone who made this one of the happiest days for our family, and especially for Gabriel, who spent the entire day hugging the guitar. Thanks a lot to everyone who was involved in this”, Gabriel’s dad said.
