Spread the love

JAY-Z had a concert at Oakland, California’s Oracle Arena Saturday night. He stopped a concert to invite a cancer survivor on stage for a hug recently. The 99 problems hitmaker called a timeout in the middle of his show after spotting Christina Cruz in the crowd when he read the placard she was holding:  “I Beat Cancer 2X 2 C U! I LOVE U!!!” read the homemade poster held aloft by a woman named Christina Cruz. “SELFIE OR HUG?”
Jay-Z said to Cruz: “You beat cancer twice. I got to give you at least a hug.” He later bought her on the stage and started a quick conversation before carrying on with the concert.

“This is exactly who my message was for,” he told the cheering crowd as he posed for pictures with Cruz.

Cruz later wrote on social media: “I can’t believe he pulled me on stage and I got to hug him not once but twice! Truly a dream come true! Thank you Jay-Z”.
She later made her account private.
