An 11-year-old cancer patient, Elijah Patrick Williams, got to FaceTime three of his favorite artists before he died last week.


Just before he died, an 11-year-old cancer patient, Elijah Patrick Williams, got a chance to talk on FaceTime with his favorite artists - The Weeknd, J. Cole, and Drake.

The news, which was confirmed by his cousin Michael Watson II via Instagram, grabbed the attention of many people and news outlets, including Billboard.

Drake's reflective post came just a few days after J. Cole postponed his Dreamville Festival due to COVID-19 fears.


According to the site, Michael posted a video of Elijah having conversations with the R&B/hip-hop heavyweights with the caption:

"Last weekend, Elijah got to 'meet' 3 of his favorite artists -- Incredibly grateful for these 3 super-humans being so caring for my family during this time..."

It was evident in the post that Elijah enjoyed the moments with the trio as his eyes shot up the moment he was told that J. Cole was on the line waiting to speak to him.


Although there was no clip of the little boy talking to Drake, his mother, Kiara Swope, included pictures of the conversation in her Instagram post.

CNN also confirmed the sweet moments through conversations with The Weeknd's representative who stated that there were indeed calls from the R&B crooner and J. Cole.

The site also recalled that Drake did a similar thing back in 2018 when he stunned 11-year-old heart transplant patient, Sofia Sanchez, in her hospital room following her entry in the KiKi challenge to his hit song, "In My Feelings."

Meanwhile, Vogue noted that the "God's Plan" rapper was seeing life differently during the novel coronavirus outbreak, which has led many to go into self-isolation.

Drake shared a series of images of him, his son, Adonis and the tot's mother, Sophie Brussaux, as he reflected on various aspects of life.

Drake's reflective post came just a few days after Variety revealed that J. Cole postponed his Dreamville Festival due to COVID-19 fears.

The show, which was originally slated to happen on April 4 at Dorothea Dix Park in Raleigh, North Carolina, has been moved to Saturday, August 29.
