Sara’s song ‘Brave’ is such a power anthem, and 4-year-old Joshua sure knows it! While fighting cancer and going though chemo, the young fan connected to ‘Brave’ — and then got the amazing opportunity to sing the hit song with Sara at her Dec. 15. See the duo’s amazing performance, here.

Joshua Chambers, 4, got such an amazing surprise when he attended Sara Bareilles show at the House Of Blues in Orlando, Florida on Dec. 15. The young fan has been fighting leukemia since Feb. 2013, but has taken to inspiring people all over the world — including Sara! She invited him to come up on stage and since her hit song “Brave” with her. “Joshua has had some health issues lately, but he is being the bravest of brave,” Sara announced, as the adorable little guy took the microphone and readied for his duet.

“Joshua is one of the bravest angels I’ve ever met in my whole life,” Sara said of the little boy, who was wearing his “Be Brave” t-shirt proudly!

Joshua asked Sara if he could wear her fedora for the performance, and she happily obliged. “How could you say no to that?” she asked the audience. The duo had the audience join in to help out with the chorus of “Brave,” and after only a moment’s hesitation, Joshua impressively belted out the lyrics with Sara.

The audience roared with a well-deserved applause and support, and we’re so excited that Joshua was able to experience this moment.

“Sara’s song, ‘Brave,’ has been his personal anthem as he has battled through countless rounds of chemo,” according to Joshua’s family’s YouTube post. “He is currently in remission, and touching lives all over the internet with his courage and love of life.”

We absolutely love when artists reach out to their young fans — especially when they’re kids as brave and inspiring as Joshua!
