Legendary rapper and producer Jay-Z shocked audience members at his show in California last week when he brought a young fan onto the stage. Jay reportedly learned of the young woman’s battle with cancer, which she beat not just once, but twice.


Hours before heading off to see one of her favorite artists perform live, Christina Cruz was at home adding the finishing touches to her home-made poster which read, “I Beat Cancer 2X 2 C U! I LOVE U!!! SELFIE OR HUG?”


According to audience reports, the rapper paused when he saw Christina’s sign and said, “You beat cancer twice? I gotta give you at least a hug.” Jay-Z then helped Christina onto the stage, where the two posed for photos and received warm cheers from the crowd.



Christina later recounted the evening as ‘the best night’ of her life, adding, “I can’t believe he pulled me on stage and I got to hug him not once but twice! Truly a dream come true!! Thank you Jay-Z!”
