Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats perform during day 3 of Lollapalooza 2016 at Grant Park on July 30, 2016 in Chicago.

"I already thought they were great guys, but they just proved it without a doubt," the fan's uncle says of Rateliff & his Night Sweats band.

Nathaniel Rateliff surprised a young fan last week in her living room with a live performance of “Wasting Time,” his song with Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats.

The fan, a young girl named Maya, is battling a disease called HLH, an immunodeficiency. The fan’s uncle arranged for the lead singer to pay her a visit, posting his gratitude for Rateliff on Facebook.
