During these uncertain times self preservation tends to be the most innate reaction of most humans. Thankfully some stars have kept one young soldier in their hearts up until his final moments.
As spotted on Complex a young child by the name of Elijah had been fighting cancer. While according to his family he had been fighting the disease like a true warrior the 11-year-old last days showing to be near. Thankfully his special request of talking to some of his favorite musicians was fulfilled in an amazing and touching way.
His cousin Michael Watson II has confirmed that he received some very VIP calls shortly before he went to God. “Last weekend, Elijah got to “meet” 3 of his favorite artists — The Weeknd, J. Cole, & Drake. Incredibly grateful for these 3 super-humans being so caring for my family during this time. We’ll hold onto these moments forever.” he wrote.

Over the past 3 years, my 11 y.o. cousin, Elijah, has battled cancer with the utmost resilience. Elijah's physical fight is now complete, as he transitioned to heaven on Friday. He didn't leave this world without knowing how much he was loved though. Last weekend, Elijah got to "meet" 3 of his favorite artists — The Weeknd, J. Cole, & Drake. Incredibly grateful for these 3 super-humans being so caring for my family during this time. We’ll hold onto these moments forever. A special thank you to the angels, Kathryn & Krystal for helping make this happen in such a short time. Please lift Kiara, Elijah's mom, and the rest of the fam up in your thoughts & prayers. In a time where there seems like so much is out of our control, one thing that we all have the power to give + show others is LOVE. 2 Corinthians 5:8
Screenshots from the actual calls were also shared via his mother’s account. You can see the clips below.
According to the original GoFundMe page he had been since Thanksgiving of 2019. Rest in peace Elijah.
