Special Olympian steals magic show from dad

April 19th, 2010 | Joe Hadsall | Filed Under General

This is one of the more heartwarming videos we’ve seen in a while. Yes, more than the turtle.

The magician on the right is Karl Rabe, a magician and father of Bill Rabe, an intellectually disabled 20-year-old with limited speech. When asked to do a fundraising show for athletes with disabilities, Karl wanted to include his son.

This seven minutes of awesome is the result:

John Rabe, Karl’s brother, wrote more about the performance on his blog, including how Karl worked with his son to get the routine down pat.

Bravo.
