Beyonce fans will remember the little girl who was brought on stage to sing “Halo” with Queen Bey during a Syndey concert back in 2009. What members of the BeyHive may not be aware of is that the singer kept in contact with the young girl named Chelsea James, who recently passed after a decade-long cancer battle.
According to Vogue, prior to her passing, Beyonce called Chelsea to lift her spirits, in a call arranged by children’s cancer charity Camp Quality. “You’ve made one of Chelsea’s last days with us one of her happiest. Thank you – and keep being you,” Chelsea’s mom said of their private conversation.
Beyonce later sent one hundred white roses to Chelsea’s funeral in Newcastle.
