Singer Justin Timberlake made a surprise visit to the Methodist Children’s Hospital in Texas on Friday after its patients’ “JT See Me!” video went viral days prior.

As People reports, Timberlake was in town for a show when he popped into the San Antonio medical facility.

Moments from the visit have been shared on various social media platforms.

One video shows a member of the hospital staff and Timberlake surprising a girl named Maria Lozoya in her hospital room before she jumps up to give him a hug.

Following her surprise visit from Timberlake, Maria was also provided the opportunity to attend Timberlake’s show in a limo at the AT&T Center the following day.

As People reports, she received the full VIP treatment at the show by receiving a front row seat and a personal shout out, all while wearing her “Team Timberlake” T-shirt.

Timberlake’s visit and kind gesture for Maria came after the kids at the hospital shared a video titled “JT See Me!”

In the video, set to Timberlake’s song “Can’t Stop the Feeling!” the young fans danced and held up signs saying, “JT See Me!”

The video has accumulated over 40,000 views since it was posted on January 15.

The Methodist Children’s Hospital thanked JT and supporters with a Facebook post accompanied by a group photo of Timberlake, Maria, and a few others.

The hospital wrote:

We want to thank Justin Timberlake for visiting with our amazing kids and their families! We also want to say thank you to YOU! for helping make this possible by sharing and liking their video. #JTSawMe

Other photos show the pop star posing with fans and even helping one patient ring a bronze bell celebrating the completion of his final round of chemotherapy.

Further, the singer was recognized by one parent for his “humble” and genuine intentions.

The mom, Annabelle Lugosi, said:

You could really tell that this wasn’t for publicity or anything like that. He genuinely wanted to be a bright spot in these kids’ lives for a day.”

In one video, Timberlake said:

It’s amazing. The kids are so strong, man. It’s inspirational.”

Timberlake’s “Man of the Woods Tour” is scheduled to end in April.
