Ebony Banks, Teen Who FaceTimed With Beyoncé, Dies Of Cancer

March 27, 2017  |  

Last week, we reported that Ebony Banks, a Houston-high-school senior who was battling stage 4 cancer, got her wish when she had a chance to chat with Beyoncé via FaceTime. Sadly, just four days after her friends helped make her wish come true, she passed away on Sunday.

News of Banks’ death was released by a staff member from Alief Hastings High School, where Banks was enrolled in school. Administrators from her school arranged an early graduation ceremony at the hospital months ago.

Shortly after, a candlelight vigil was held in Banks’ honor at the LeRoy Crump Stadium.

Though the conversation between Banks and Beyoncé was private, there was a clip of both Ebony and Beyoncé saying that they loved one another.

May Ebony rest in peace.
