A mother records and shares to social media one of her son’s final moments. Eleven-year-old, Elijah Watson got to meet his favorite music artist in the industry, just a week before he passed. His cousin, Michael Watson announced the news on Instagram.
“Over the past 3 years, my 11 y.o. cousin, Elijah, has battled cancer with the utmost resilience,” he began. “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,” he continues.
In the clip of Elijah on facetime with his favorites, you can see the young boy waving with a smile. “It’s such a pleasure to meet you, man,” J Cole says in a clip. Drake tells Elijah, “I’m so honored to be one of your favorite artists.”
Our prayers and condolences are with the families of Elijah Watson.
