Beyonce Honors 13-Year-Old Fan Who Passed Away From Brain Cancer

Beyoncé is honoring Lyric Chanel, a young fan who died on Friday after battling brain cancer and anaplastic ependymoma for two years.

Lyric’s journey over the years was documented by her and her family on her Instagram page, which gained nearly 600,000 followers and the attention of various celebrities including Beyoncé and Cardi B. Beyoncé first connected with the teen when she sent Lyric flowers in September after she shared throwback clips of her preschool-self adorably singing along to the star’s 2011 hit song, “Love On Top.”

In the background, Beyoncé sings a mashup of her songs, beginning with “Brown Skin Girl,” before transitioning into “Halo” and finally, “Love on Top.”
