* In the aftermath of the tragic Manchester shooting in 2017, Music/ArianaGrande decided to host a major concert there to show support. Not only did she visit with all the survivors of the shooting, she also gave them front-row seats. A baker's row of famous musicians signed on to perform (Music/MileyCyrus, Music/JustinBieber, Music/KatyPerry, and Music/PharrellWilliams, to name a few), but one of the sweetest moments came when Chris Martin of Music/{{Coldplay}} brought Grande onstage and told her that to repay her for the singing she's done for Britain, Britain would sing for her. He then led the crowd in a massive sing-along of Music/{{Oasis}}' "Don't Look Back in Anger," a song that became an anthem for the city in the aftermath of the shooting. She was justifiably overwhelmed, basking in a BigDamnHeroes moment the likes of which might not have been seen since Bob Geldof organized Live Aid.

--->''So instead of seeing [[HistoryRepeats this as a continuation of the era]] of TheTwentiethCentury that [[UsefulNotes/WorldWarI gave us]] [[UsefulNotes/WorldWarII so much death]] [[VietnamWar and destruction]] [[TheWarOnTerror undermining our liberties]] and the conditions are dangerous". Let us think that we are now moving into a [[DawnOfAnEra new era]], a new era where we are going to [[AWorldHalfFull concentrate on liberty and freedom and property and peace]]. [[EarnYourHappyEnding I believe that is the cause we should lead]] and I thank you very much for being part of it!''

* For those who are and were avid players of ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons '', having VinDiesel--''[[PrecisionFStrike friggin']]'' ''[[Film/PitchBlack Riddick]]''--not only proudly say that he is a fan and avid player of the game, but going so far as to write a deeply personal forward to the book ''30 Years of Adventure: Celebrating Dungeons & Dragons'', celebrating the game's 30th anniversary.

* At the 2009 {{MTV}} Video Music Awards, when Music/TaylorSwift went up on stage to accept her Moonman for Best Female Video, she was rudely interrupted by Music/KanyeWest, who infamously declared that [[MemeticMutation "Beyonce had the best video of all time!"]] So when Beyonce herself wins the award for Video of the Year, what does she do? Rather than deliver the acceptance speech that she had prepared, she invited Taylor back on stage to finish hers.

* At BotCon 2009, Creator/PeterCullen made an appearance, along with other people who were in the then-upcoming ''[[TransformersFilmSeries Revenge of the Fallen]]''. There was no small amount of praise for his distinctive work as the voice of Optimus Prime, but the most touching was from Tyrese Gibson (who plays Robert Epps in the films), who let on that he came from a single-parent home, and that Optimus was the closest thing he had to a father growing up.

** A lot of Catholics have become saints for CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming's:
*** [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Father_Damien St. Damien of Molokai]]: A Belgian priest, he went to Hawai'i in the late 1800's as a missionary. At the time, Hawaiians were dying in droves from European diseases. One of the worst was leprosy; to prevent its spread, the Hawaiian king ordered lepers quarantined on the island of Molokai. The local bishop knew that the lepers deserved a priest, but the assignment was a death sentence. Fr. Damien volunteered. For the next 25 years, Fr. Damien lived among the lepers, serving as a priest, but also teaching children, dressing sores, building houses, and digging graves. Fr. Damien ultimately contracted leprosy himself and died, asking only to be buried with the other lepers. When the king's daughter came to Molokai to present a posthumous medal to Fr. Damien, she was moved to tears by what she saw on the island. Fr. Damien was named a saint in 2009; he is the patron saint of people with HIV/AIDS.
*** [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mary_Euphrasia_Pelletier Euphrasia Pelletier]] was an 18 century nun who founded the order of the Good Shepherd to save wayward girls who were in moral danger. She saved a lot of child prostitutes, homeless women and others abandoned by their families and had nowhere to go. She told her nuns "Cup of milk given at the right moment will do more to bring her back to right dispositions than would acts of severity".[[note]]This has been attributed to Mother Teresa; she was quoting St. Euphrasia.[[/note]] She cared not only for their physical well being but for their souls. She emphasized the importance of the catechism but also that the girls should be kept interested. Many of the rescued girls even joined the order or remained permanent penitents.

* The story of [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saroo_Brierley Saroo Brierley]]. In the '80, he was just a poor 5 years old Indian boy that got lost in Calcutta, very far from his hometown. After living on the streets for months, he was taken by the authorities. Unfortunately, his lack of education made it difficult to find his mother and hometown, so they placed him for adoption. He was adopted by an Australian couple and led a successful and comfortable life. But Saroo never forgot his family back in India. When he heard of Google Earth, he frantically started searching for his hometown with just his memory as reference. [[TheDeterminator It took him four years, but he finally recognized the place he used to live.]] After a trip to India, Saroo was finally reunited with his mother 25 years later, who never gave up hope of seeing her son again. Also a MomentOfAwesome and a TearJerker. A movie named ''Lion'' has been made based on the story, starting Creator/DevPatel.

** Similarly, BillOReilly once did a week-long series called "Children at Risk", where he interviewed popular music stars about the perceived negative effects that their music had on kids. Inevitably, he interviewed Music/MarilynManson at one point. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G6n5Oi4714o This]] is the conversation that resulted. Whether or not you like either of them, it's pretty damn heartwarming that two people so different could have a completely civil discussion, even when O'Reilly brought him on the show to condemn him. At the end of the interview, ''Marilyn freaking Manson'' looks O'Reilly in the eye and says, [[SincerityMode without any irony]], "I respect you." Damn.
