Beyonce is making dreams come true.
Beyonce made the dream of one of her teenage fans come true with a surprise FaceTime call.
The ‘Lemonade’ singer surprised Ebony Banks, who is a senior at Alief Hastings High School student and battling stage four cancer.
Banks and her friends had launched a social media campaign to meet her idol using the hashtag #EBOBMEETSBEYONCE.
Days after their hashtag went viral, Beyonce granted Banks’ wish and surprised everyone with a FaceTime call.
“I love you Beyoncé,” said Banks as she chatted with her idol from the hospital. While Beyonce waved back and replied, “I love you.”
“[Banks] is a really big fan of [Beyoncé] and she has so much love for her that we really want to get [Banks] to meet her,” said Banks’ friend Cristal Depaz.
“Beyoncé is one of her idols. She admires her so much, so we’re trying to put that on Twitter and Instagram to get Beyoncé’s attention."
