Last week Ebony Banks was granted a wish and received a FaceTime call from Beyoncé. Ebony was diagnosed with cancer and we are saddened to report that she has passed away.
Ebony’s classmates went hard with a social media campaign to get the queen bee on the phone, and it worked – clearly just in time. According to Houston publication KHOU, Ebony lost her battle just four days later. Below is a photo of a beautiful vigil they put together for her.
Rest in peace.
