The terminally ill high school student whose last wish was to meet Beyonce has passed away.

Ebony Banks lost her battle to cancer on Sunday, just four days after meeting the Queen Bey by way of FaceTime.

The teen’s school, Alief Hastings High School, confirmed the news on Twitter. On Sunday night, following news of Ebony’s passing, the school’s band held a candlelight vigil to remember the late teen.

This time around Cosby announced on his Facebook that he’d be doing a set a couple hours before.

#BillCosby has returned to comedy since his trial last summer.

The disgraced comedian’s retrial on sexual assault charges is set to begin in April, and a new jury selection begins at the end of March. He averted a decision this past June when a jury couldn’t agree on a verdict … ending in a mistrial.
