If it were your last day on Earth and you had only wish, what would it be? That’s one question that I have always wondered. What would be my last wish?
Oftentimes, we live our lives celebrating the days that we are given and hoping for a better tomorrow. Sometimes in the midst of our celebration, we tend to forget that tomorrow is never guaranteed to anyone.
Recently, a family of an 11-year old boy named Elijah, are now thanking three artists for talking to Elijah during his final days on Earth
11-year old Elijah Williams has been battling cancer for the past three years, according to an Instagram post by his cousin, Michael Watson II who is a creative director and the founder of a Los Angeles media production company called HUE Unlimited.
In the Instagram post, there is footage of 11-year old Elijah speaking with rappers J Cole and singer The Weeknd on a FaceTime call.
The video shows Watson holding the phone to Elijah and telling him that J Cole is on the phone and wants to speak with you.
“It is a pleasure to meet you man. I love you boy, ” Cole said.
In the second part of the video, it shows The Weeknd speaking to Elijah and saying that it is an honor to be his favorite artist.
Although the video does not show the FaceTime call with Drake, Watson wrote that Elijah enjoyed every bit of it.
“He didn’t leave this world without knowing how much he was loved,” Watson wrote. “Last weekend, Elijah got to “meet” 3 of his favorite artists — The Weeknd, J. Cole, & Drake. “Incredibly grateful for these 3 super-humans being so caring for my family during this time. We’ll hold onto these moments forever,” Watson said in his post.
Rest in Peace King Elijah! 👑 Much love to the Williams family! Sending all my prayers and condolences. To the community in which Elijah lived in Hampton, sending all my love. Big shoutout to The Weeknd, J Cole & Drake.

Over the past 3 years, my 11 y.o. cousin, Elijah, has battled cancer with the utmost resilience. Elijah's physical fight is now complete, as he transitioned to heaven on Friday. He didn't leave this world without knowing how much he was loved though. Last weekend, Elijah got to "meet" 3 of his favorite artists — The Weeknd, J. Cole, & Drake. Incredibly grateful for these 3 super-humans being so caring for my family during this time. We’ll hold onto these moments forever. A special thank you to the angels, Kathryn & Krystal for helping make this happen in such a short time. Please lift Kiara, Elijah's mom, and the rest of the fam up in your thoughts & prayers. In a time where there seems like so much is out of our control, one thing that we all have the power to give + show others is LOVE. 2 Corinthians 5:8
