“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!

I think that what you published made a ton of sense.
But, think about this, suppose you were to write a killer headline?
I am not suggesting your content is not solid, however what
if you added something that grabbed a person’s attention?
I mean Sara Bareilles Sings Brave Duet With 4-Year-Old Cancer Fighter Joshua Chambers – Hollywood Life is a little plain.
You might peek at Yahoo’s front page and note how
they create post titles to grab viewers interested.
You might add a related video or a related
pic or two to grab people excited about what you’ve got
to say. In my opinion, it could bring your website a little bit more interesting.
