15-Year-Old Mexican Cancer Patient Beautifully Sings ‘Ave Maria’ For Pope Francis
During Pope Francis’ recent stop in Mexico City, the pontiff made a Valentine’s Day stop at Hospital Infantil de México Federico Gómez to visit sick children. That’s when 15-year-old cancer patient Alexia Garduño offered to sing “Ave Maria” for the pontiff. Get ready for #goosebumps.
At first, Pope Francis seemed a little hesitant to sit through an impromptu concert.
You know. It’s like when your little prima wants you to watch her practice her dance recital moves, but you want to go out.
But when she sang, the room went completely still.
The pope was so moved by Garduño’s rendition of “Ave Maria” that he gave her a kiss on the cheek.
I mean, #goals, yo.
His Holiness was even moved to tears after hearing the teenager sing her heart out.
Even Mexico’s first lady, Angélica Rivera, had to hold back tears.
