Travis Barker, the renowned drummer of Blink-182, took to the stage alongside nine-year-old Grayson Roberts at the Dream Factory hosted by motivational speaker Charlie ‘Rocket’ Jabaley in downtown Los Angeles last Friday evening.
The inspiring journey began when Charlie ‘Rocket’ Jabaley, a 35-year-old podcaster, encountered young Grayson outside his home, where the determined child was operating a lemonade stand.
Grayson’s mission was clear: To raise funds that would enable him to embark on a journey to “see” the world, including iconic destinations like the Great Wall of China.
Charlie, himself a survivor of a brain tumor, was deeply moved by Grayson’s dream and pledged to support his cause.
Together, they transformed the modest lemonade stand into a grand event known as “Limitless Lemonade,” sponsored by Once Upon a Coconut.
The event drew “hundreds” of attendees who rallied behind Grayson’s dream.
With a warm greeting, Barker expressed his admiration for Grayson’s musical talents, saying, “What’s up Grayson? Nice to meet you.
I brought you some drumsticks. I saw a video of you playing drums and singing.”
Not stopping there, Barker continued, “I brought some donations for you. I brought some money for you,” showcasing his support for the young musician’s dreams.
