The teen who got her wish last week to Facetime with Beyonce has sadly lost her battle with stage 4 cancer.
According to KHOU, Ebony “Ebob” Banks passed away just four days after her one-on-one with Bey.
Her classmates and friends had pushed for the Facetime call on social media under the hashtag #EbobMeetsBeyonce. Last Wednesday, after hearing about the effort, Bey called Banks on Facetime and the two were able to have a private conversation.
In video of the converstaion, Bey tells Banks, “I love you.”
On Sunday, Ebony’s Alief Hastings High School family held a candlelight goodbye vigil.
