AUBURN HILLS (CBS Detroit) — Gloria Gaynor may have been the scheduled halftime show during the Pistons-Bulls game Saturday, but U.S. Army Private Namon Bledsoe stole the show.
Bledsoe, who has been serving with the U.S. Army for the past year in South Korea, surprised his mother with the help of the Pistons.
His mother was given courtside seats to watch Gaynor’s shows, and after her performance, the singer walked to her seat to introduce the game’s guest of honor.
Andre Drummond escorted Bledsoe –who was in his Army uniform — to his surprised mother.
“I was ecstatic,” said Denise Edwards. “I didn’t think I was going to see him for another couple of months.”
Her son was equally happy to be reunited.
“It was a good surprise,” Bledsoe said.
