One Durham County student got the surprise of a lifetime thanks to his choir teacher.

Donovan is a special needs student at Northern High School and his choir teacher, Rachel Spencer, wanted to something special for him for his final Open Mic performance.

She gathered up some teachers and administrators and chopped up a ton of fruit to help him perform his favorite song, "Fruit Salad," by the Wiggles.

"For the last Open Mic, I bought a ton of fruit, the culinary program chopped it up, and I wrangled a bunch of teachers and administrators to back Donovan up for his final performance," Spencer said.

Spencer said since Donovan performs the song at every Open Mic, it became a running joke in the class.

The stunt was well received and Spencer said that she's happy she was able to pull it off.

"Shout out to all these awesome people for confusing adolescents and embarrassing yourself with me," Spencer said.
