Little Benjamin Ganding's ninth birthday turned into a heartwarming moment for those present, as the young boy's visible excitement was hard to ignore. Nine-year-old Ben, as he's fondly called, suffers from a medical condition — Osteogenesis Imperfecta. People with this condition can have their bones broken easily, often from mild trauma or with no apparent cause.

Ben, a self-proclaimed Bruno Mars' fan turned nine on August 17. For the occasion, he was dressed like his favorite pop singer complete with black shades and a gold chain. A video clip of Ben driving around in his customized tiny Red Porsche was shared on Twitter by his companion Allyson Entwistle along with a caption: "Ben channeling his inner Bruno Mars! After 9 years, he upgraded from a red wheelchair to a red car and he was so excited! #BenMeetsBruno #OsteogenesisImperfect."



 

Entwistle even tagged Ben's favorite singer Bruno Mars in the post. The video was viewed over 2,277 times, at the last count.
