Nurses perform Backstreet Boys medley for patient

A group of nurses put on an impromptu Backstreet Boys performance for a patient who was forced to miss the boy band's Atlanta show due to a cancer diagnosis.

Amanda Coley, who had received tickets to the concert as Christmas gifts from her husband, had to cancel after she had to start treatment. 

Her sister, Maggie Mayes Kingston, who was set to accompany her to the concert, decided to stay back and put together a "Backstreet Boys party" in her room at Northside Hospital in Atlanta.

The nurses accepted the invitation and surprised Coley by singing along to hits like I Want It That Way and Everybody.

After Kingston tweeted a video of the performance, Nick Carter shared the footage on his Twitter handle with a special message for Amanda. 

Needless to say, Amanda is ecstatic at the response and it's helped her on her road to recovery.
