She fulfilled a teenager’s final wish with a surprise phone call. And Beyoncé made the moment special for Ebony Banks, a high school senior battling a rare form of cancer, when she surprised the teen with a FaceTime call to wish her well. ‘I love you,’ the 35-year-old Grammy winner told Ebony during the conversation.
The Houston teen shared a snip-it of their conversation on her SnapChat and it quickly went viral. Ebony , whose friends call her Ebob, is a senior at Alief Hastings High School and has spent most of her final high school year out of the classroom after being diagnosed with stage four cancer. The teenager, who is a member of the color guard, had one final wish: to meet Queen Bey. Her friends started the hastag #EBOBMEETSBEYONCE on social media in an attempt to get singer’s attention.
