He truly is a brave little one! Sara Bareilles was joined on stage at the House of Blues in Orlando, Fla. by special, 4-year-old guest Joshua Chambers on Sunday, Dec. 15.
"You guys are just going to fall in love with him, the way that I did," the "Long Song" crooner, 34, shared in her introduction, which was captured on video and uploaded to YouTube. "Come on up here sweetie!"
As seen in the heartwarming clip, a bald, jean-clad boy runs up and into Bareilles' arms as she introduces him to the enthusiastic, responsive crowd. "Guys this is Joshua, and Joshua has had some health issues lately," she shared with the roaring show attendees. "And Joshua is being the bravest of brave."
The youngster, who wore a black T-shirt to Sunday's show that read, "Be Brave," is currently in remission after being diagnosed with leukemia back in February. "Joshua's one of the bravest little angels I've ever met in my whole life," Bareilles said as she wrapped her left arm around the 4-year-old kid. "And so he was so brave, he asked if he could come on stage tonight and sing for all of you."
According to the video's description, Joshua's anthem during his "countless rounds of chemo" has been Bareilles' Grammy-nominated track "Brave." The Blessed Unrest crooner is also Chambers' favorite artist.
