Beyoncé made the dreams of a little girl come true this Christmas, when she serenaded a young fan, Taylon, at one of her Las Vegas concert performances. The 32-year-old, who recently added dates to her “Mrs. Carter World Tour,” sang to the 11-year-old superfan, who has an inoperable brain tumor.
Through the efforts of the Make-A-Wish foundation, which granted 14,003 wishes this past year, Taylon’s last wish -- to dance with the Queen Bey herself -- came true in Vegas this week, as she was able to see Beyoncé perform live. On top of that, during the concert, Beyoncé, wearing a sparkly blue jumpsuit, went over to Taylon's area and kissed her on the cheek as the little girl looked in awe and cried tears of happiness. Beyoncé proceeded to sing along with Taylon, even singing her Destiny’s Child anthem, “Survivor.” The video is sure to move anyone who watches it.
Meanwhile, Beyoncé, whose self-titled album is nearing 1 million in U.S. sales, has been having a phenomenal year. In addition to having a surprise album, Beyoncé announced she is debuting another fragrance, called Rise. She's already had great success with her first two perfumes, Pulse and Heat. Rise is described as an “intoxicating, addictive luminous floral,” intended to be “a little bit more intimate and personal” -- just like her latest album, which has been criticized for its R-rated lyrics.
