GREENSBORO, NC — WFMY News 2 viewer Shanell Brown got her son a birthday present he’ll always remember!

Her son, Ayden James, turned 4 Tuesday and she wanted to get him a great gift! He’s loved drums since he was one. He already has his own snare drum and has what she calls an obsession with the North Carolina A&T State Drum Line, Cold Steel. In an email to WFMY News 2, she said “Every day we would drive by NCAT campus and he’ll say “mommy that’s A&T, I’m going there and to Dudley.” So she decided to ask the band to surprise him.

So she reached out to a former Cold Steel drummer and he gave her contacts on how to make it happen.
