Alicia Keys has extended an invitation to Ralph Yarl to attend one of her concerts after the teen mistakenly went to a wrong address and was shot by a white homeowner in Kansas City.

Lee Merritt, an attorney representing Yarl's family, told TMZ that Keys invited the teen to attend her Kansas City concert in July and meet her.

According to reports, Roc Nation also reached out to Yarl and his family to offer help in the wake of his shooting.

Yarl mistakenly went to the wrong address to pick up his siblings last month when he was shot twice by Andrew Lester, an 84-year-old white homeowner. Lester was charged with assault in the first degree and armed criminal action in Yarl's shooting.

Lester told police that he shot Yarl because he thought the teen was trying to break into his home and he was “scared to death."

Following the shooting, Yarl was transported to a local hospital with severe injuries, including traumatic brain injury, according to Merritt. The teen is now at home and expected to make a full recovery.

“He has a prognosis of a full recovery, minus scarring and long-term, maybe, CTE and Post Traumatic Brain Injury symptoms,” Merritt previously said.
