Carlos Vives will melt your heart with his most recent move.

During a concert in Miami over the weekend, the Colombian singer was joined by a very special guest: 4-year-old Salma Richani, a little girl who has been battling cancer and who is considered his No. 1 fan.

“I have a friend that life has given me the opportunity to meet,” Vives told the audience. “She promised that she wanted to live and she is here tonight at our concert.”

Vives, who first met the little girl at a Miami hospital in early October while she was getting treatment, asked her to join him on stage to sing her favorite “Volvi a nacer” (“I Was Born Again”).

“This song is a very special part of my kids, part of my family, part of Lena and Pedro (his children), it is for Salma,” he said before pulling her up on stage. “Salma, I love you, thank you for tonight and being here.”

He shared this photo after the concert.

 

Vives and Salma, who is from Maracaibo, Venezuela, first met after her father made a video of his daughter singing her song and uploaded it online.

The singer eventually got wind of the cute video and reached out to the young girl’s family.

“Thank you #SalmaRichani, Elizabeth, Kaled Jr and Kamilita we are happy with your friendship and Salma is pure life,” Vives posted on Instagram with a video of when they met.
