Selena Gomez Releases New Video of Heartwarming Duet with 13-Year-Old Heart Patient Julia [VIDEO]
When the Ryan Seacrest Foundation opened The Voice at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) last month, Selena Gomez dropped by to surprise the patients and help kick off the opening of the studio. Of course, they were beyond excited! Children spilled outside of the studio and into the lobby to listen to the interview and meet their favorite teen idol. While there, the Disney star gave an impromptu performance of her popular song, “Who Says?” with 13-year-old heart transplant patient Julia Parmisciano strumming along on her guitar. The lyrics to the inspirational melody hit home with her fans at CHOP, and they sang along with the superstar.
Selena was so touched by Julia’s performance that she went back to CHOP armed with a camera crew to record a video of them playing together. The result is this heartwarming installment to Selena’s “We Own the Night” web series. In the video, Selena gushes about how much she loves visiting the patients at the Children’s Hospitals in Atlanta and Philly and how grateful she is that these kids get access to state-of-the-art multimedia studios.
