Ciara brought some joy to one of her young fans. On Monday (Jan. 4), the singer made an appearance on “Good Morning America,” where she surprised six-year-old Audrey English with a trip to Disney World. The young girl fought cancer after being diagnosed on her third birthday and is now in remission.

“Oh my goodness. I’m in tears right now. Aubrey, I just want to say that you are a superhero. You are the real superhero,” Ciara told English. “And I’m so impressed by your strength and how you never gave up in your battle against cancer. You inspire me and so many people and so many others.”

“You are a real ‘Level Up’ princess so keep leveling up and inspiring so many, Aubrey,” the “Promise” singer said while wiping away some tears. “I’m so proud of you and rooting for you always.”

English was brought to Ciara’s attention after her mother posted a now-viral video of her dancing to “Level Up” while undergoing cancer treatments. The clip was an example of the positive energy she exuded amid the dark time. “She was still happy and smiling and dancing. It just bought so much light to us, even during some of our darkest days,” her mother told “GMA.” “She is a joy. She is really rambunctious. She’s always been very positive, even on the worst day,” she continued. “She absolutely is my hero. She absolutely is.”

Ciara’s kind gesture comes months after she teamed up with Project Health Equality and the Black Women’s Health Imperative to bring awareness to cervical cancer and its effect on Black women.

“I want to encourage women to understand the importance in this case how you can serve confidence and get ahead of everything. The cool thing is you can prevent cervical cancer. How amazing is that?” she said. “Go out there and make an appointment. Put yourself first, you have to. Putting yourself first is everything. Then you can take off and be your best self in every way possible.”
