Meeting arranged by Make A Wish foundation
Beyonce invited a terminally ill fan to sing and dance with her during a recent gig in Las Vegas – scroll down and click to watch.
Earlier this month (December 6), the singer came into the audience at the Las Vegas stop of her Mrs Carter Show World Tour to meet a fan, named Taylon, who has been diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumour. The pair sang ‘Love On Top’ and ‘Survivor’ together, with their meeting arranged by the Make A Wish and Philanthropy Programme Partnerships.
Ivy McGregor of Philanthropy Programme Partnerships said: “Here’s a little girl literally fighting for her life. ‘Tomorrow’s not promised, next week’s not promised, but right now I’m here’ and her thought that will forever stay with me is ‘Since I’m here I might as well live’.”
It was revealed yesterday (December 27) that the singer’s new self-titled album ‘Beyoncé’ was illegally downloaded 240,000 times in the first 10 days since its release, resulting in $3.8 million of lost revenue. The album was released this month on iTunes with no run-up or publicity, marking a final surprise release in a year that has also seen similar promotion-less tactics from David Bowie and My Bloody Valentine.
Beyoncé, meanwhile, revealed after the album’s unveiling that she was ”really nervous” about the release. “I was terrified. I was so scared. I already envisioned like the worst things that could happen,” Beyoncé revealed before moving on to discuss the more personal side to the album. “I’m very private and I’m very respectful, and I think it just took me no longer being someone’s child — once I became a mother, I felt like I could tear those fourth walls and I just felt like it was time. I completely feel liberated.”
