Selena Gomez recently made a sick fan’s dream come true after inviting the little girl to her concert and serenading her onstage.
The young cancer patient, identified only as Ella, listened to Gomez’s music to keep her spirits up in hospital after she was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic lymphoma, and was thrilled when Make-A-Wish Foundation bosses gave her the chance to meet her idol.
The very generous Selena treated Ella to a pampering session before they retreated to the singer’s penthouse suite at West Hollywood’s Mondrian Hotel, where the two played video games and posed for pictures together.
But the best was yet to come – Ella was given the star treatment with a limousine ride to Gomez’s concert, where the teen sensation dedicated her hit Love You Like a Love Song to her.
In her true style, Selena insisted that she was honoured to help out, “I have worked with Make-A-Wish many, many times. I think the organisation is really amazing. They make kids that are going through something that may be difficult – for not just them but for the whole family – they put a really wonderful smile on their face.”
“The biggest honour is actually the kids. You kind of take them away from their world for a minute, talk to them, get to know them, be a part of them. Today, meeting Ella, was really sweet and one of those moments.”
This is why we adore Selena so much! What a sweetheart!
