One young high school student’s dreams came true when she got to talk to her idol Beyoncé.
Ebony Banks, a senior at Alief Hastings High School in Houston, is battling stage 4 of a rare form of cancer. Knowing Banks’ dream was to meet Beyoncé, her friends launched a social-media campaign with the hashtag #EBOBMEETSBEYONCE in hopes of gaining the superstar’s attention.
A few days after the hashtag went viral, Beyoncé surprised Banks with a FaceTime phone call.
In a touching exchange, Banks lays in a hospital bed and says, “I love you Beyoncé,” to which Queen Bey replies, “I love you.” Watch the clip below:
