Beyonce's touching gesture to fan's grieving family

Beyonce Sends Flowers To Grieving Family of Teen Fan


When people discuss singer Beyonce, they often use the term "diva." But there was nothing diva-esque about her kind actions earlier this week.

During a concert in Australian back in 2009, Beyonce picked a young girl named Chelsea Lee James out of the crowd to help sing her hit "Halo."

Chelsea was diagnosed with cancer in 2004 and, despite treatment, her cancer only continued to spread.

Sadly, five years after first appearing on stage with her idol, Chelsea has died.

Beyonce sent a bouquet of flowers to her family with a note reading, "Chelsea was a beautiful girl and I am so happy I was able to meet her. She touched my heart and I will never forget her."

Nope, nothing diva-esque about that at all.

I don't think Beyonce can take a crap without first alerting the media.

This is so sad, to use this as a way to get publicity. If it was really heart felt, the media would not have known about it. That is true love and kindness.

In the drug infused and self indulgent music industry, she is the rare voice of class.

However I agree about the oprah thing said earlier. She never does anything good for people that isn't publicised by her own crew. Shes a joke and a half. I used to love oprah. So Im not just being judgmental with out watching her or reading her magazines.

Everyone who is saying Beyonce did it for publicity you do realize that it was the family who posted a photo of the flowers and not Beyonce. Why is it that when people display any sort of kindness people assume they are doing it for their own personal advantages. There are some decent human beings left on this planet.

A bouquet of flowers. BFD for a mega-rich Beyonce. Anybody who goes ga-ga over that triavial gesture is is need of sycophant therapy.

There you go. She certainly can afford it. After all it is the people who make her rich. Actually, both she and Jay z havn't done anything all that dramatic. They make loads of money. I bet many peole sent flowers, but only Beyonce was mentioned.

She's trying to make up for buying hospitals to have her kid, drinking from titanium straws, vacationing to illegal countries and forcing her staff to wear 100% soft-cotton clothing. I'll bet she's a major diva underneath.
