Austin has Matthew McConaughey. Houston has Beyonce. But El Paso... El Paso has Khalid. 

The recently Grammy-nominated 19-year-old has been called Chuco Town’s “adopted son” and hasn’t (even once) forgotten where he came from.

Khalid made a special visit to El Paso’s Crockett Elementary School Monday, the El Paso Times reports, where he surprised students with Hello Kitty dolls, footballs and over 500 other donated gifts. 

Handed out some gifts to some amazing kids today and received so much love! Thank you Crockett Elementary for allowing me to stop by! ??
