Elijah Patrick Williams, an 11-year-old most cancers affected person, FaceTimed three of his favourite artists — Drake, The Weeknd and J. Cole — earlier than he died final week.
His cousin Michael Watson II confirmed the information Sunday by way of Instagram, the place he posted a video of Elijah’s face-to-face conversations with the three R&B/hip-hop hitmakers. “Over the past 3 years, my 11 y.o. cousin, Elijah, has battled cancer with the utmost resilience,” Watson wrote. “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.”
Biz 3 Publicity proprietor Kathyrn Frazier and Krystal Miles, government assistant director of Anderson .Paak’s .Paak House, organized the digital meet-and-greets. Elijah’s mom Kiara Swope praised the artists, in addition to NASCAR driver Joey Logano, for “showing my baby some love these last difficult days of his life,” in response to her personal tear-jerking social media tribute.
In each of his household’s posts, Elijah’s eyes shoot open the second he realizes J. Cole is on the road and exclaims, “Whoa!” when he will get in contact with The Weeknd. Although there isn’t any video recording of his dialog with the “God’s Plan” rapper, Swope included images of her late son holding the telephone to speak to him.
