Singers Drake and Rihanna took a break from touring yesterday to mourn the loss and celebrate the life of a very special fan.
Megan Flores was suffering from terminal cancer when she met the famous pair through the Make-A-Wish Foundation back in March and it seems the Florida native made quite the impression on the performers.
According to E! News, Drake and Rihanna – who are currently touring together on RiRi’s Anti World Tour – learned of Megan’s passing on Saturday and quickly took to social media to acknowledge the powerful impression she had made on them.
Sharing a picture of Megan on Instagram, Drake wrote: “Rest in peace my angel. I know heaven is celebrating today.”
“Thank you for the moments and emotions we share I am blessed to have known you in this lifetime.”
Earlier this year, the rapper dedicated his latest album Views to Megan.
Above the credits for the album’s opener he said: “This body of work is dedicated to Megan Flores. I pray for your well-being every day.”
Rihanna also used Instagram to mourn the loss of the fan and reminisce on how Drake had introduced her to Megan after her performance in Miami.
The star wrote: “I had the pleasure of meeting an angel on earth! After my show in Miami, [Drake] introduced me to Megan!”
I had the pleasure of meeting an angel on earth! After my show in Miami, @champagnepapi introduced me to Megan! She's inspired me so much with her strength and her perspective on life! So fearless and kind! It's heavy news that I can't slide in your DMs anymore like I used to!! There was always a smile waiting for me there! You brightened any day! Rest up baby girl! We will miss you!!
“She’s inspired me so much with her strength and her perspective on life! So fearless and so kind!”
