Camila Cabello arrives at the 2018 Billboard Music Awards at MGM Grand Garden Arena on May 20, 2018 in Las Vegas.

Camila Cabello made a surprise visit to the Ryan Seacrest Foundation's event at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia on Friday (July 13), and by the looks of it, the kids couldn't have been happier.

Seacrest took Cabello to his foundation's broadcast media center, Seacrest Studios, where she sang a rendition of "Havana" for the young fans.

"Thanks for surprising the kids @Camila_Cabello :)," the American Idol host wrote alongside an Instagram video.

The songstress posted a touching message herself with a collage of photos she took with the children. "Today I heard a conversation between parents of a little girl at the hospital and @ryanseacrest , the parents told him how much the foundation helped their child - instead of talking about doctors and treatments, she was talking about how excited she was for the next karaoke competition at the studio downstairs," she wrote.

"So thankful for foundations like these that make lives so much better, so thankful for kids like these - with so much talent, spunk, knowledge, and spirit in spite of their everyday battles - thank you."

 

the Ryan Seacrest foundation does a beautiful thing for the kids in Philly's Children's Hospital. kids that are being treated at the hospital get to be themselves, express their dreams and voices, and have something fun to look forward to so they don't feel defined by what's going on in their lives at this moment, by taking care of their hearts as well as their bodies and having activities, positive music, games, and competitions in the Ryan Seacrest studio downstairs- seeing their smiles, their spirit, and their positivity only makes it clearer to me that the most valuable lessons we can learn come from kids, today I heard a conversation between parents of a little girl at the hospital and @ryanseacrest , the parents told him how much the foundation helped their child - instead of talking about doctors and treatments, she was talking about how excited she was for the next karaoke competition at the studio downstairs- so thankful for foundations like these that make lives so much better, so thankful for kids like these - with so much talent, spunk, knowledge, and spirit in spite of their everyday battles - thank you @ryanseacrest @ryanfoundation for having me
