Reggaeton megastar Bad Bunny has made an incredible gesture to Mayah Zamora, a survivor of the Uvalde, Texas school shooting in May.
As well as becoming a global icon of the music world and making waves in pro wrestling for his appearances at major WWE events including WrestleMania 37, Bad Bunny is also known for his charitable works.
Most recently, this has seen him working with the Correa Family Foundation to secure funds for a new house to be built for Robb Elementary School shooting survivor, 10-year-old Mayah Zamora and her family.
This came about after the star became aware that Zamora had lived close to the shooter’s home. Zamora was also the Foundation’s ‘Hero of the Month’ in August. At the time, the CFF explained that she was chosen for the honour for her incredible courage and bravery.
“Mayah has suffered unimaginable hardship this year after losing many of her closest friends and two beloved teachers during the Robb Elementary School massacre in Uvalde, Texas. She was severely and critically wounded herself. ”
“While hospitalized, she continued to amaze doctors with her resiliency and strength. All doctors, from her trauma team to plastic surgeons, were in awe of her.”
“It is a true miracle that she survived all of her injuries, which included a severe wound to her chest. All in all, she underwent 20+ surgeries and remained hospitalized for 66 days.
“Although these past few months have been the most difficult of her young life, Mayah’s incredible courage and bravery have helped her persevere.”
Bad Bunny met with Maya Zamora for the first time on September 9th when he invited her and her family to his concert in Dallas, Texas. The star also asked them to come backstage so he could take time to meet them.
The CFF thanked the star for his gesture on Instagram.
“A huge thank you to (Bad Bunny) for welcoming our Hero of the Month, Mayah Zamora, to your concert, and for making sure she had a beautiful and fun night dancing with her family!
“All the love she received from you and your team, (Noah Assad and Rimas), made this an incredible experience she and her family will cherish.”
Bad Bunny first appeared in WWE in January 2021 at the Royal Rumble where he performed his hit song “Booker T” alongside the WWE Hall of Famer.
Over the next few weeks he engaged in a feud with The Miz and became aligned with Damian Priest. This led to a match at WrestleMania 37 where Bad Bunny teamed with Priest to take on The Miz and John Morrison.
At the event, Priest and Bad Bunny scored the win, and the music star earned plaudits for his performance, which included him hitting a Canadian Destroyer. The star returned to WWE at the 2022 Royal Rumble where he entered the Royal Rumble Match.
Recently, Triple H has confirmed that WWE is in talks with Bad Bunny for a return to the company.
