It is everyone's dream to meet their favorite celebrity in real life. While it is too good to be true for most, this woman got a chance to meet Chris Martin in the best way possible. Saundra Glenn, a 64-year-old woman—who goes by @OfficialSaundra on X—took to social media to share the unforgettable experience of how she met the Coldplay singer. Glenn wrote, "That moment when Chris Martin @Coldplay saw me struggling to walk, had his car stop and gave me a lift. Can't believe this happened. What a decent bloke. We had a nice chat too. He is single and likes #Luton. Thanks again @BBCR1."

It happened before the Coldyplay's performance at Radio 1's Big Weekend in Luton's Stockwood Park in England, reports PEOPLE. Glenn has osteoarthritis and a "dodgy right hip." She met the singer when she was walking towards the accessibility box office and took a few moments to rest against a fence, according to BBC. The 64-year-old recalled that a black Mercedes stopped alongside her and a woman asked her to sit in the car so she could give her a lift.

Till then, Glenn had no clue who was inside the car. She remembered, "The door opened and I said, 'Oh, that's Chris Martin. I can't get in with him and they said, 'Yes, you can.'" Before she was given a lift, Glenn was contemplating going home and watching Coldplay's performance on TV. However, then she changed her mind, thinking she might never get to see the band in her hometown again. Martin was even ready to help Glenn get into the car, but she politely refused. After she got into the vehicle, they were taken to the artist's arena.

However, the "Yellow" singer didn't just leave Glen there. Instead, he arranged a golf buggy so she could reach where she needed to be. She told BBC, "It's the fact he's conscious of disability, he's such a kind person." She also shared the conversation she had with him in the car. Glenn recalled that the singer just laughed when she told him that she was 64 and had just come for the performance to see him and now that she had seen him, she could go home. Glenn had also asked Martin about the BBC Three Counties Radio campaign to change the lyrics of Yellow to Orange. The singer responded that there was a "good surprise." Later that night, Coldplay performed a new song called "Orange," written by Martin as a tribute to Luton and its football club.

He spoke to Glenn about his rehearsal and told her he liked Luton. The woman shared his lovely response when she told him that she had lived more than her parents, "He said, 'You're not going anywhere yet,' I was clutching his shoulder and having a chat like two old women." The 64-year-old called the Radio 1's event "the coolest event" she had been to and also applauded the band for writing a song about Luton's football club. But more than that, what she loved was meeting Martin. "He gave me an act of kindness that I'll forever be grateful for, and he's given Luton its cool back, thank you."
