Alex Boye surprised Jenny Bess and her family with a visit in May. | EastIdahoNews.com.

The day of the surprise arrived. Alex showed up at the EastIdahoNews.com studios and he seemed, well, a little off. He repeatedly asked to excuse himself and was almost 30 minutes late for Jenny’s visit.

We soon learned why.

With cameras rolling, Alex arrived at Jenny’s house and surprised her family and friends.

He then sang a powerful song, spoke with her a little bit and that’s when things took a drastic turn.

Alex handled the situation like a champion and had no concerns about us posting the video that’s, well, a little embarrassing.

He’s a class act who turned a horrible situation into a memorable night for all involved!
