Kelsea Ballerini, More Stars Meet Teen Battling Cancer at 2017 Grammy Awards
A 14-year-old from Ohio saw her dream of attending the Grammy Awards come true on Sunday night (Feb. 12) when she and her family were given tickets and VIP treatment to the show, Cleveland.com reports. Jane Finley even got to meet with stars including Kelsea Ballerini.
The teen has been battling Hodgkin’s lymphoma and had been undergoing treatment when she learned about her trip to the awards show through Make-A-Wish Foundation.
“Battling Hodgkin’s lymphoma, Jane is undergoing treatment at Cleveland Clinic Children’s,” a press release states. “She is happiest while singing, acting and reading about her favorite celebrities in glossy magazines. Her surprise reaction to learning her wish would be granted drew excitement and tears.”
The Make-A-Wish Instagram account followed Jane and several friends at the Grammys as they hung out on the red carpet and awards show and met many of the artists nominated and performing at Music’s Biggest Night.
It was a big night for country music Sunday as Urban and Underwood teamed up for the live television premiere of their new single “The Fighter.” Maren Morris took the spotlight for her powerful performance of “Once” with Alicia Keys while Ballerini joined forces with the singer from Lukas Graham for a mashup of her hit “Peter Pan” and “7 Years.” Little Big Town embraced their inner ’70s child with a tribute to the Bee Gees alongside Tori Kelly, Andra Day and Demi Lovato.
