Disturbed were praised for their supportive moment during a recent show when they halted proceedings to help out a weeping fan. 

The heavy metal band’s lead singer David Draiman, 50, momentarily pulled the plug mid-way through a recent performance in West Palm Beach, Florida. 

He hopped off the stage and stopped the loud music to chat with a young fan who was watching the show from the front-row barricades and had burst into a fit of tears. 

An explanation for the concert’s interruption was offered by a fan on a Reddit forum named Humans Being Bros who claimed to have been a ticket holder at the event. 

They penned alongside a video of the star speaking with the young fan: ‘What happened was the little girl was singing all the lyrics and David invited her to come onstage with him and she freaked and started bawling. He immediately stopped the show and went down to talk to her.’

In the post online, the girl told the star her name was Sophia in between sobs and David was seen attempting to settle her, saying he was sorry for making her upset. 

He could be heard explaining: ‘It’s ok. I didn’t mean to scare you. You okay? You promise? Oh, darling, you’re making me feel terrible now.’  

The singer then turned to the packed venue and said: ‘See, I love, absolutely love, that Disturbed concerts have become a family affair. I love it.

‘And this little girl has been singing her heart out the entire show. She knows so many of the songs.

‘What’s the worst thing that a child is going to encounter? A little bit of profanity? We live in a world where there are so much more vile and ugly things in it than profanity.

‘It doesn’t matter where you come from or who you are. All of us came here tonight for the same reason. 

‘All of us came here tonight because the world is hard. Life is hard. And you come here to take your burdens and to set them down!’

The heavy metal artist poetically ended his speech by turning to the fan and telling her: ‘Besides, darling, we may be dark. But let me share a secret with you. Sometimes darkness can show you the light.’
