Beyoncé sends flowers to late fan's family

01 May 2014, 10:05

Los Angeles - Beyoncé paid tribute to one of her biggest fans after the young girl lost her battle to cancer.

The Drunk in Love hitmaker sent a bouquet of 90 white roses and a handwritten note to Chelsea Lee James' family, who are mourning the loss of the beloved teenager after she passed away at the age of 15 on 21 April.

The family posted a picture on Facebook, which showed the flowers and the message attached.

The note read: "Donna, love and prayers to you and your family. 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."

Chelsea - who had been battling the illness for the past decade - was brought on stage during Beyoncé's 2009 concert in Sydney, Australia, when she dedicated Halo to her.

She sang: "Chelsea I can see your halo, I pray it won't fade away."

The pair were reunited backstage at the Mrs. Carter Show in November after the children's cancer charity Camp Quality organised a meeting.
