Beyoncé paid tribute to a young fan who lost her battle with cancer with a video Friday featuring an a cappella medley dedicated to the late Lyric “Yhung” Chanel.
The 13-year-old Chanel died Friday following a two-year battle with brain cancer and anaplastic ependymoma; Chanel’s fight against the disease and her positivity in the face of the diagnosis made her an Instagram sensation and garnered support from artists like Beyoncé (who sent Chanel flowers in September 2020) and Cardi B, Billboard reports.
In Beyoncé’s tribute to Chanel, videos from the girl’s Instagram were strung together with Beyoncé accompanying the footage with a voice-only medley of “Brown Skin Girl,” “Halo” and “Love on Top.” On the latter track, Beyoncé changed the “baby” to “”Lyric it’s you/You’re the one I love/And you’re the one I need/You’re the only thing I see/Come on Lyric it’s you.”
The singer added to Chanel at the end of the tribute, “I love you with all my heart.”
