Beyonce paid an emotional good-bye to an Australian adolescent battling cancer by treating the devotee to a special phone call soon before her departure.
The star and Chelsea James first met with while on tour in Sydney in 2009, when she asked the then-11 year old up onstage so she could serenade her .
However, the teenager’s health took a turn for the worse just four months later in early 2014, and when Beyonce learned Chelsea was given only two weeks to live, she set up a time and date to telephone the young fan on her cell phone so they may enjoy one last dialog together.
The message read: “Donna, love and prayers for you plus your loved ones. Chelsea was a girl that is beautiful and I am quite happy I managed to meet with her. My heart was reached by her and she will never be forgotten by me.”
In this article, he writes, “On that special phone call, nobody understands what was said. It was an intimate moment between two girls. Chelsea’s mum texted me afterwards saying, ‘the message’ve made one of Chelsea’s last days with us one of her most happy. Thank you – and keep being you.’ “Just under two weeks later, Beyonce sent one hundred white roses to Chelsea’s funeral in Newcastle. ‘Can and do anything for the household?’ Beyonce’s manager asked me. ‘Just ask Chelsea to never be forgotten by them,’ Beyonce’s mum told me. It is clear she truly won’t.”
