This lucky airline passenger was jamming out on her earbuds during a recent flight with a pretty amazing surprise sitting right next to her!
Seems Alicia had recently fallen in love with the music of a Dutch singer-songwriter named Dotan, and was listening to his latest album from front to back during a flight. She was listening loudly enough that her random partner in the seat next to her could hear it, too.
This mystery neighbor in the seat next to her recognized the music and dropped mega-hints for her to pick up on. But Alicia did not pick up on who this person was until she received a note from him at the very end of the flight, and she was completely bowled over at who it was: Dotan!
He was humble and kind, and didn’t want to embarrass her. He even started live-tweeting to his followers about the funny situation of listening to his own music as Alicia was commenting on it, all without her having a clue it was her favorite new musician! She had obviously heard the tunes, but hadn’t seen the face…
The story’s got a very happy ending: he left a note for her explaining to her who he was, and even threw in tickets to his show! Read the adorable letter she wrote back to him here.
