Becky G is in the business of making dreams come true. The "Sin Pajama" singer granted the wish of 16-year-old Leukemia survivor Jessie, with the help of Make-A-Wish America, at iHeartRadio's Fiesta Latina over the weekend.
Becky had a quite the meet up with Jessie, who was joined by her mom and brother, as the two enjoyed getting to know each other, shared memories, created new ones, and exchanged gifts.
As soon as the teenager met her idol, she was immediately overcome with emotion. However, within moments, the pair's emotional greeting turned into a dance party as Becky challenged Jessie to a dance-off. Once the "Cuando te Besé" singer showed the Georgia native a few moves, Jessie began hip-shaking on her own, thoroughly impressing Becky. (Jessie's got some moves!)
After chatting awhile, the ladies realized they shared a lot of the same interests like creating slime! Jessie and Becky also noticed that they have the same favorite color, yellow, the same favorite food, tacos, and they both have an extreme passion for all things neon. With so much in common, Jessie even said they were more like "sisters" than friends.
After a few more laughs, Jessie, who is currently in remission, tearfully gifted Becky a mini-purse and a special cancer pin. The pin holds great significance to Jessie as she carried a similar pin while she received cancer treatment. The beautiful moment was capped off with Becky wiping away Jessie's tears and issuing her some words of encouragement. "You are so strong, don't ever forget that. You're perfect, you're beautiful, and you are smart and you are kind and you are intelligent," Becky told her. "And you're capable of doing anything you put your heart or mind to, okay? Especially when you have your family by your side. Never take them for granted... I love you so so much. Thank you!"
