Chance The Rapper has been praised after he managed to secure a pair of tickets for a terminally ill teenager to see Coldplay.
The rapper, who previously pledged $1 million for school funding in Chicago, reportedly secured the tickets for teenager Heidi Hernandez who is battling primary sclerosing cholangitis, a liver condition that she has lived with since the age of three.
Despite battling the condition everyday, Heidi works at a pizzeria in Chicago suburb Northbrook, and credits Coldplay for helping her battle depression.
“It felt like everyone was being connected somehow because you enjoy the same music”, Hernandez told ABC7 Chicago.
“I got into a really bad depression where I wouldn’t even be able to go to school. And I just started listening to [Coldplay’s] music and it made me feel a lot better.”
