When you bring up Batkid, Nick Cannon gets quite emotional. At least that’s what he told HipHollywood on the orange carpet at the 2013 TeenNick HALO Awards.
For the fifth year in a row Cannon served as the host for the show that honors teens who “Help And Lead Others”. While shining a spotlight on the four outstanding teens who were honored this year for their work in their communities, Nick also took a moment to recognize the thousands of volunteers who made Miles Scott’s Make-A-Wish dream of becoming Batkid a reality.
“It touched my heart, I shed a tear”, the America’s Got Talent host stated. And we can’t blame him. 5 year-old Miles battled Leukemia for several years but thankfully he is currently in remission. His one wish to become Batman for a day was granted when volunteers in San Francisco orchestrated a series of mock crimes that he solved throughout the city. It’s pretty amazing!
