Kenny G has been killing it lately. First off, his Twitter game is on point, and recently the sax man serenaded passengers on a Delta flight in honor of flight attendant Jane Mitchell’s daughter who was diagnosed with brain cancer in 2015. Of course, a video of the spontaneous saxing went viral. You can check it out above.
Jane also showed Kenny some photos of the previous year’s Delta Jet Drag, a perennial fundraiser where teams compete to drag a 167,000-pound jet 20 feet in the fastest time. “That looks pretty cool,” Kenny G remarked to Jane. Jane then said, “You should come to Jet Drag.” “Maybe I will,” Kenny replied.
Much to Jane’s delight, Kenny surprised her in Atlanta at the Delta Jet Drag sax in hand. Kenny and Jane snapped some photos together and Kenny helped drag the jet on Jane’s team. Kenny then performed during the Relay for Life. With Kenny’s help, Jane’s team raised $120,000. Here’s what Kenny had to say about the event.
