Woman helps man short on cash, finds out he’s Keith Urban

Ruth Reed, a retired elementary school teacher, was at Medford's Wawa convenience store on Friday when she noticed a man trying to pay for his items and thought he might be in need.

Urban had been in the Garden State as part of his Graffiti U tour and performed at the BB&T Pavilion in Camden later that night.

It is not clear if Ruth ended up attending the concert herself after her encounter with Keith.

A few years ago she made it a New Year's resolution to do it weekly.

That's when she realized he looked familiar.

Reed added that he thanked her and, said that his name was Keith.

A substitute teacher in New Jersey who thought she was helping a down and out man by paying for his cup of coffee, turn out to be country music star Keith Urban. Basically, Ruth Reed is everyone's sweet mom who loves to help out strangers and also loves Keith Urban, even if she doesn't recognize him when he's starring her in the face.

"And I just fell apart, fell apart and he was gracious", Reed said.

She overheard Urban ask a companion for $5 and said he looked like he could use some help. "I asked where Nicole [Kidman] was and who was the lady [he was with]".

Reed and Urban took a photo together outside of the store.

Reed has been getting a lot of attention the last couple days about her interaction with Urban and says the only reason she agreed to talk with us about it on camera is to try and inspire other people to also do acts of kindness.
