An 11-year-old hip-hop fan tragically lost his battle with cancer this week, but not before he got to the chance to meet his heroes.
The boy, Elijah Watson, met J.Cole, The Weeknd, and Drake all over Facetime, which you can see in a post by the boys cousin Michael Watson.
In the caption for the video, Michael wrote: "Over the past 3 years, my 11 y.o. cousin, Elijah, has battled cancer with the utmost resilience. Elijah's physical fight is now complete, as he transitioned to heaven on Friday. He didn't leave this world without knowing how much he was loved though. Last weekend, Elijah got to "meet" 3 of his favorite artists — The Weeknd, J. Cole, & Drake. Incredibly grateful for these 3 super-humans being so caring for my family during this time. We’ll hold onto these moments forever. A special thank you to the angels, Kathryn & Krystal for helping make this happen in such a short time."
Watson then went on to urge people to show love to those around you, and keep the family in your prayers.
"Please lift Kiara, Elijah's mom, and the rest of the fam up in your thoughts & prayers. In a time where there seems like so much is out of our control, one thing that we all have the power to give + show others is LOVE. 2 Corinthians 5:8"
Elijah's mother also made an emotional post to IG, thanking the artists for making her son smile.
R.I.P Elijah, and made love to the artists who were able to help him smile in the last days of his life.
