CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

A young girl named Taylon once told her parents that one of her greatest wishes was to meet Beyonce. The singer and the Make-A-Wish Foundation partnered to make her dream a reality.

Doctor found an inoperable tumor in Taylon's brain. She said her dying wish was to dance with Beyonce. When she found out she was going to Beyonce's Mrs. Carter Would Tour performance in Las Vegas, she was ecstatic. She had no idea the night would be so much more.

As Beyonce descended from the ceiling on a wire, a YouTube video released on Christmas Eve shows the singer walked down to Taylon's seat in the audience and gave the girl a great big hug and kiss. She then launched into the Destiny's Child hit song "Survivor," which is an anthem about never giving up.

Taylon found the strength to get up out of her wheelchair and dance with Beyonce in front of and audience of thousands. Taylon couldn't hold back her tears, calling the experience a special moment that she will never forget.

"Here's a little girl literally fighting for her life," Ivy McGregor of Philanthropy Program Partnerships said in the YouTube video. "'Tomorrow's not promised, next week's not promised, but right now I'm here,' and her thought that will forever stay with me is 'since I'm here I might as well live.'"
