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."
