Last week, The Weeknd, Drake, and J. Cole all FaceTimed an 11-year-old fan, Elijah Patrick Williams, before he died of cancer, Billboard reports. The boy’s cousin, Michael Watson II, confirmed the news via Instagram last Sunday.
“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.”
He continued, “Last weekend, Elijah got to ‘meet’ 3 of his favorite artists — The Weeknd, J. Cole, and Drake. Incredibly grateful for these 3 super-humans being so caring for my family during this time. We’ll hold onto these moments forever.”
