Well, thanks to the Make-A-Wish Foundation, the 12-year-old girl’s dream came true at the Las Vegas stop of the Mrs. Carter World Tour earlier this month. During the show, Queen Bey floated out to the catwalk near Taylon, introduced herself and gave the young girl a big kiss on the cheek. They went on to sing “Love on Top” and Destiny’s Child “Survivor” together.
“I am having so much fun,” Taylon told the camera, dancing in her wheelchair.
According to philanthropy strategist Ivy McGregor, “They found an inoperable tumor on her brain and her dying wish was to dance with Beyonce.”
“Here’s a little girl literally fighting for her life,” she said. “Tomorrow’s not promised, next week’s not promised, but right now, ‘I’m here.’ And her thought that will forever stay with me is, ‘Since I’m here, I might as well live.'”
