(MIAMI) — A Florida high school senior got a huge surprise Friday night when basketball star Dwayne Wade surprised her at her senior prom.
Nicole Muxo, a senior at Archbishop Colman Carroll High in Miami, posted a YouTube video in April inviting the Miami Heat basketball star to her prom, even sending him a Tweet with the address of the prom in Coral Gables.
Wade decided to show up, calling her at the start of the prom to wish her well – without telling her he was actually there. He said it was fun to suddenly appear, upstaging her actual date.
“To be talking to her on the phone and then um to be able to walk in and see her reaction was awesome,” he recounted later.
Wade had a dance with Muxo, mingled with her family and posed for lots of photos.
“This was definitely the highlight of my senior year,” Muxo said.
