Booboo Stewart made the day of two young musicians by jamming with them. He was back in Australia for the Perth telethon. he has first attended the event last year and was so touched by the money raised, he came back again this year. According to Perth Now

TELETHON’S brightest little stars Savanna Addis and Ben Popham hit a high note when they jammed with Twilight star Booboo Stewart over the weekend.

The courageous pair, aged 10 and 11, who have endured their fare share of setbacks, are budding musicians.

And on Saturday, they were presented with instruments from Perth-based charity Strike a Chord a not-for-profit organisation that gives the gift of music to seriously ill and disadvantaged children.

“It’s is a big score,” Ben, who has been playing the violin for two years, said.

The youngster, who suffers from cerebral palsy and has his legs in orthotic splints, said he was keen to learn how to play the Fremantle Dockers theme song.

And for him, rubbing shoulders with Hollywood movie star Stewart had been “fantastic”.

“Meeting Booboo has been the highlight so far,” Ben said.

“(Telethon’s) just a wonderful experience to be part of.”

A talented musician, Stewart who plays the guitar, bass, keyboard and drums, said he was thrilled to be back in Perth for his second Telethon in as many years.

“Hanging out with Ben and Savanna has been great, they’re really awesome,” he said.


  1. BooBoo was very generous with his time. He also won $50,000 for Telethon by partaking in a game.

    The spirit of Telethon is truly touching. We also raised a record amount of just over $13.4 million dollars.
