Drake, J. Cole and The Weeknd Facetime a young sick fan before he died from cancer.
The world can be a really sad place, and the little moves we make to alleviate it help a lot. Superstars, Drake, J. Cole and The Weeknd recently gave the most they could to a sick fan just before he passed away from cancer.
According to reports, the 11-year-old fan, named Elijah was Facetimed by his favorite artists while his cousin, Michael Watson filmed it. In the video, it gets really emotional as they (calling at different times) thank him for being their fan.
Cole can be heard saying,
“It’s a pleasure to meet you, man. I love you, dude,”. At the time of the call, Elijah was surrounded by his family at their home in Hampton, Virginia. After he passed on, his mom shared the news thanking the stars who called for showing him love.

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. 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
