Today was a great day! The DDR Dream Team was able to put a HUGE smile on Jonathan’s face by presenting him with a poster signed by his favorite singer, Kellie Pickler, along with Chris Young, Montgomery Gentry and The Band Perry! Jonathan was escorted in to see many of DDR’s staff awaiting him in the conference room to meet him with cheers and applause. He was already wearing a big smile before Kim Michel presented him with the wrapped poster. Julie Coley and Kim assisted in opening the bright paper to reveal the signed poster and the smiles just got bigger. Jonathan’s favorite phrases “HECK YEA” and “Oh my God!” got plenty of use as he expressed his excitement! He also gave the Dream Team the single best “thank you” I’ve ever heard! He plans to hang this poster on his bedroom wall along with a picture of him receiving it.

This signed poster was able to be obtained with the help of Rosanny and Brandon Crumpton of Key Signature Entertainment, the staff at JHE Productions and the DDR Dream Team. The JHE Productions team made huge efforts to secure a meet and greet with Kellie when she was in Charlotte performing at Speed Street a few weeks ago, but were unable to coordinate it with her schedule. Here’s hoping that we get another opportunity to try to make the meet and greet happen. In the meantime, Jonathan will enjoy the autographed poster as we enjoy his exceptional smile!

A very special gift for Jonathan!
