Adam Sandler’s daughter Sadie got a very special surprise for her bat mitzvah last month when Adam Levine and his Maroon 5 bandmate James Valentine showed up and played three songs at her party. Sandler had texted the singer, a friend, asking for a favor.

“I didn’t even know why I did this, but I said, ‘I’m sorry to do this to you, my kid’s getting bat mitzvahed Saturday night. Would you mind coming and singing a few tunes? It would be incredible,’” Sandler said in an appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live.” Levine responded immediately that he would do it, and told Sandler he’d attended bar mitzvahs at the same venue when he was a kid.

“It was the coolest thing, man.” Sandler said, adding that Sadie “hugged me so much.” Levine was one of many celebrities in attendance. Dustin Hoffman, Conan O’Brien, Chris Rock and David Spade were just a few of the stars on the guest list.

Sandler, whose Netflix movie “Murder Mystery” with Jennifer Aniston begins streaming June 14, now has three years to plan a surprise for his daughter Sunny’s bat mitzvah. “Maybe he’ll come back,” he said of Levine. “I can’t top my Adam.”
