London has been battling health issues for most of her life. The 9-year-old spends hours every week in medical clinics and hospitals getting treatment. During that time, she brings her headphones and listens to the beautiful music of GENTRI.

London had always wanted to meet the group and when they visited eastern Idaho in September, helped them pull off a surprise visit at her home for Feel Good Friday. Many tears were shed as GENTRI sang her some songs and provided an afternoon she’ll never forget.
