Marrero was on Ellen to talk about his experience and how Katy helped during his recovery period.

But there was a surprise in store: Ms. Perry was backstage, ready to meet Tony!

The two have an incredible moment on-stage, and the bond prompts Katy to offer to pay for his first year of film school. The generosity stuns Marrero.
