Beyoncé dances with terminally ill young fan, sings 'Survivor' to little girl with brain cancer

The Philanthropy Program Partnerships posted a video of the superstar singing and dancing with Taylon is Las Vegas during a very special stop on her Mrs. Carter tour.

Beyoncé went beyond saying that she cares about her fans' wishes — and actually made one come true.

The pop superstar danced with Taylon, a terminally ill girl, at her Mrs. Carter Show earlier this month in Las Vegas.

"They found an inoperable tumor on her brain, and her dying wish was to dance with Beyoncé," said Ivy McGregor, of Philanthropy Program Partnerships, in a video posted to Beyoncé's YouTube channel Christmas Eve.

Just days after learning she would attend the concert, Taylon was face to face with her musical hero, who crouched down to embrace the little girl in her wheelchair.

While dancing with Taylon, Beyoncé appropriately launched into "Survivor," a hit from her Destiny's Child days about not giving up.

The chorus — "I'm a survivor, I'm gonna make it, I will survive, Keep on surviving!" — took on a new meaning when sung specifically for Taylon, who shed tears of joy.

"Here's a little girl literally fighting for her life," McGregor said. "'Tomorrow's not promised, next week's not promised, but right now I'm here,' and her thought that will forever stay with me is 'since I'm here I might as well live.'"
