Despite his wife and her family always being in the spotlight, Kanye West has been strangely silent and not seen as much with Kim Kardashian, or any of her family. Sure, he’s a busy man with a big music career and a successful shoe line, but that’s not necessarily why he hasn’t been seen. We’re now learning what the Yeezy mogul himself did just hours before a young girl died.
To say Kanye is busy is an understatement but that didn’t stop him from showing up when he was needed most. He is an American rapper, singer, songwriter, producer, fashion designer, entrepreneur as well as a husband and father. Recently there have even been rumors that he might be coming out with new music soon but when the family of one of Kanye’s biggest fans reached out to him with an offer he could not refuse he knew he needed to drop everything he was doing immediately.
According to TMZ, “Kanye West provided a little joy in a fan’s final hours … chatting with and rapping for her before she died.”
We’re told Kanye recently became aware of a young fan who was battling cancer. The fan’s family tried hard to get in touch with him because the pre-teen was a huge fan, and last week — when word reached Kanye, he jumped at the chance to connect.
Kanye FaceTimed the girl last week. They talked for awhile and the girl then asked Kanye to rap, “I Love Kanye” — her favorite song. He was more than happy to oblige.
The young fan was ecstatic. She died a short time later.
Kanye just fulfilled this girl’s dying dream. With so much craziness going on in the world it is refreshing to hear stories of people doing good things. We hear too often about selfish celebrities that when they use their notoriety for good, it needs to get the attention it deserves. It’s a simple act of kindness he did for a fan because he wanted to and one of the final thing in that child’s short life was what he did for her. That’s truly special and makes him a better person than some of the negative things said about him too often in the press.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family of the girl who passed away. I am sure her family will never forget the simple act of kindness that was shown to their daughter in her final moments.
