Pharrell Brings Out Leukemia Patient To Serenade Her On Stage
Pharrell Williams' heart is made of pure gold.
Reef Carneson, eight-year-old who has been in the hospital since the age of one, was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia. He has had a dream of meeting his idol Pharrell Williams. According to TMZ, Milk Tyson made a video last Wednesday (May.31) where Carneson humbly asks Williams for a FaceTime call.
However, the "Happy" singer had a different idea in mind. The Billionaire Boys Club fashion creator invited Carneson to his Saturday (Jun.3) night show in Philadelphia. Carneson drove to Philly to meet his favorite artist. He stayed in a five star hotel, received backstage passes, and best of all-- went onstage with Williams. Carneson was invited onstage during the performance of "Happy." Williams made the crowd repeat how much they loved Reef. Williams said to the crowd as he pointed the microphone towards them, "Reef we love you."
The very next day after making Carneson's wish come true, Williams flew just in time for Ariana Grande's One Love Manchester benefit concert where he performed "Happy" with Miley Cyrus.
This isn't the first time Pharrell has done an act of kindness. Back in December of last year, the "Frontin' " singer surprised a school of students at Washington Heights middle school. While the band was in the middle of rehearsal, Williams encouraged them to keep playing as he serenaded them. He took them by surprise by performing two of his songs "Runnin' " and "I See A Victory" which were on the soundtrack for the film Hidden Figures. He told the Daily News, "It's amazing because you're hearing the next generation who are being mentored and being taught by a school whose sole purpose is to build a future one lesson at a time."
