During his Saint Pablo tour stop in Inglewood, California, on Tuesday, Kanye West took the time to meet a very special audience member: Alton Sterling’s oldest son.

According to a Twitter post by attorney Justin Bamberg, Cameron Sterling was at the concert celebrating his 16th birthday. Watching the rapper perform in person is probably one of the most memorable experiences for a Kanye stan. But getting to meet him and his wife, Kim Kardashian? That’s a whole other level of emotions.

Bamberg shared a photo of Cameron standing between the couple backstage. The attorney captioned the Twitter picture: "Shoutout to @kanyewest & @KimKardashian for showing 16th bday love last night to my client #CameronSterling, eldest son of #AltonSterling.”

Bamberg is part of a legal team representing Cameron and his family in a wrongful death suit, after his father was fatally shot by white police officers in Baton Rouge, Louisiana earlier this year. Following the news of Sterling’s death, protests launched all across the country. Kim also joined the conversation with a blog post titled “StraightUp, #BlackLivesMatter.”

“This week we watched Alton Sterling and Philando Castile, two innocent black men, get senselessly murdered by police officers. Like a lot of you guys, I watched the videos, and was appalled and completely heartbroken. I was left speechless, angry and numb,” she wrote. “I want my children to grow up knowing that their lives matter. I do not ever want to have to teach my son to be scared of the police, or tell him that he has to watch his back because the people we are told to trust—the people who "protect and serve"—may not be protecting and serving him because of the color of his skin.”
