Dwyane Wade surprises high school senior Nicole Muxo at her senior prom. She invited him via YouTube last month.

Last month Nicole Muxo, a senior at Archbishop Coleman Carroll High School in Miami invited Dwyane Wade to prom via YouTube knowing her chances may be slim to none due to the NBA Playoffs.

Friday night, Muxo's wish came true.

Wade did not formally accept her invitation; instead he surprised Nicole and her classmates at La Jolla Ballroom in Coral Gables.

"She actually DM'd me on Twitter and said, 'This is the address, this is where I'm gonna be just in case,' and when I got that I said I won't be doing nothing tomorrow night and I can go and make this a memorable moment for her," Wade told reporters.

The two took pictures with family and close friends, and shared a dance. "I'm gonna remember it forever. This was my highlight of my senior year," said Muxo.

It was certainly a night to remember, as can be seen in the following tweets and Instagram photos.
