11-year-old Audrey Soape lost her father and grandfather last year and was feeling sad about the upcoming daddy-daughter dance at her church in Round Rock, Texas.

Audrey's mom, Holly, wanted to do something special for her daughter, so she reached out to their favorite NFL player, Anthony Harris, to ask if he would take Audrey to the dance.

Much to her surprise, he said yes.

"Through the grace of God, and amazing generosity of the Anthony Harris Foundation, my girl got escorted by her favorite Philadelphia Eagles player Anthony Harris. From start to finish, this evening was made magical, starting with him getting her the dress and shoes of her dreams," Holly wrote in an Instagram post.

"He was so kind and so sweet and just made the entire night so special for her," she said.

Harris said Holly often reached out to him on social media to ask how her family could pray for him.

"Asking if I need any prayers through transitions," he said. "It was really just them opening their arms."

Holly said the evening was a "fairy tale" and the smile never left her daughter's face.

"You've got to cherish these moments," Harris added. "You never know how long we have here on this earth. The people that you care about and the people you love, show support for them."
