Fan who Sang “Island in the Sun” During Brain Surgery is Invited by Weezer to Concert
According to the YouTube video description, “Kira Iaconetti literally sang her way through surgery in an effort to preserve her passion to sing. Doctors discovered a rare tumor in the 19-year-old’s brain that was causing seizures when she listened to music or sang. She says ‘it’s a cruel, sick joke’ but doctors at Seattle Children’s Hospital performed a specialized surgery that had her wake up and sing, allowing them to steer clear of areas in the brain she needs to produce music.” -Weezer caught wind of the surgery and have invited Kira to a future show in 2019.
