Last week pop singer, Miley Cyrus visited the Rady Children’s Hospital in San Diego, where she met eight year old Julia Davidson battling neuroblastoma, a form of cancer. Miley who was with her boyfriend actor, Liam Hemsworth were treated to a surprise performance of “Rainbow Connection,” Kermit the Frog’s wistful hit from 1979’s “The Muppet Movie.”
Julia’s father posted a video of the encounter on YouTube where it is leaving no dry eye after watching the little one’s touching performance.In the video, an emotional Miley says to Julia, “You made me cry because it was so beautiful!
Do you know how important it is to make people cry when you sing?” Cyrus told Julia, wiping away tears. If I was in my ‘Voice’ chair right now, I would have turned around for you. For sure!” Hemsworth was also clearly moved by the moment and said, “Wow … that’s a really good gift you’ve got.”
According to her Go Fund Me page, Julia was diagnosed with cancer of the adrenal glands about two years ago. She was at the hospital for her monthly treatment when the stars stopped by.The hospital later took to Facebook to offer a shout-out to Miley and her foundation, The Happy Hippie Foundation, which offers support for homeless and LGBT youth.
On their Facebook page they posted a couple of pictures and videos with the caption “Thank you to Miley Cyrus, Liam Hemsworth and The Happy Hippie Foundation for bringing joy and laughter to our patients!”
