Omaha, NE--Just a day in the life of a rock star, complete with paparazzi, adoring fans, bodyguards, and the V.I.P treatment everywhere you go.
For 11-year old Cayden, it was a wish come true. The Lincoln elementary school student has been fighting brain tumors and the Make-a-Wish Foundation wanted to make sure his dream of being a rock star came true.
So the hoopla started this morning, unbeknownst to Cayden. "The principal called him to the office to receive a character award and as soon as he was in the office they shooed all the kids outside and they lined up the red carpet for him," recalled Jenna Daley, from Make-A-Wish.
After publicity stops in Lincoln, a limo brought him to our Journal Broadcast studios where screaming girls awaited him.
"We have signs, girls, groupies. We've got it all," remarked Daley as she surveyed the scene.
After singing and doing an interview with CD105.9's Steve King, Cayden was whisked away to catch the plane to Los Angeles.
Daley listed the itinerary, "He's going to record a single out there. He's going to have an interview with Mario Lopez, then he's also going to Macy's....so he's got quite the trip ahead of him."
Cayden is taking the entire adventure in stride. And while he acknowledges he's having a great time, he also told us, "From all the paparazzi, I'm seriously going deaf at the end of all this."
It's a very special wish come true.
