MEMPHIS, Tenn. — University of Memphis quarterback Jacob Karam recently made 11-year-old Breanna Bercegeay's day when he showed up at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital and started playing the piano.
Karam the quarterback, according to the article, has come at least 10 times in the past year to visit kids and their families at St. Jude. He comes every month or two to visit the children, telling nobody at Memphis, and sometimes plays a kid's favorite song on the piano.
When he showed up on this past Monday night, he met Bercegeay.
"This little girl came up to me," Karam said, "and somebody said she wanted to sing. She was very shy, I could tell, and she had the mask on. I asked, 'What's your favorite song?' She said 'Price Tag.' I didn't know how it was going to go, but she started belting it out. I tried to figure it out on the key, started backing her up a little.
"She sang her heart out, and it sounded beautiful."
Karam, now preparing for his second season as the Memphis starter, was nominated for the Allstate AFCA Good Works team in July.
