Beyoncé grants dying girl’s ‘wish’

Beyoncé helped to make a terminally ill girl’s dreams come true recently by singing a duet with her at a concert in Las Vegas.

Taylon Davis, who has an inoperable brain tumor, made a request through the Make-A-Wish Foundation to sing and dance on stage with the “Crazy in Love” hitmaker and Beyoncé honored the 12-year-old’s dying wish by performing her hit song “Survivor” with the child during her show in Sin City.

On Christmas Eve, the singer released a video online telling Davis’ story and showing footage of the two together.

Davis isn’t the first fan Beyoncé has invited to join her onstage at one of her concerts – last month, the icon performed “Irreplaceable” with a blind 13-year-old girl from Australia.

REVIEW: ‘It Follows’ is the best American horror film in a decade

In this image released by Brigade Marketing, actress Maika Monroe appears in a scene of It Follows, directed by David Robert Mitchell. “It Follows,” has been arguably the buzziest American film at Cannes next to Bennett Miller’s wrestling drama “Foxcatcher,” which boasts a far more famous cast and a major premiere at the Palais des Festival.

"It Follows" is a horror movie worthy of classic comparisons.
