Jack Black sang for a terminally ill young fan in a heartwarming video shared on social media.

The 53 year old actor was hosting the Layla Paige and Friends Walk for TrinityKids Care charity event in Rancho Palos Verdes, Calif. on Oct. 6 when he was introduced to 15-year-old Abraham.

Black was seen smiling and kneeling down to shake Abraham’s hand at the start of the clip, which was obtained by Fox News Digital.

When told that “School of Rock” was Abraham’s favorite movie and “In the End of Time” was his favorite song from the movie, Black said, “That’s my favorite movie. Thank you.”

Abraham smiled and nodded as Black finished his serenade in style as the crowd that had gathered around the two clapped and cheered.

In the 2003 comedy, Black played Dewey Finn, a rock guitarist who poses as a substitute teacher at a prestigious private elementary school. After turning his students into rock-n-roll fans, he forms a new band called “School of Rock” to compete in the Battle of the Bands.
