Gospel Singer Tamela Mann Grants Cancerous Boy’s Wish
Gospel singer Tamela Mann made one little fan’s dreams come true by singing her popular song “Take Me to the King” with him.
On August 30th, the parents of 4-year-old Markel posted a photo of him holding a sign that read:
Hello, my name is Markel. I’m 4-years-old and I’m battling a cancer that has caused me to go blind. The cancerous tumors have moved to my brain. My biggest dreams are to meet Tamela Mann, Mercy Me and go on the Ellen DeGeneres Show. Please like and share to make my dreams come true. God bless. #TeamMarkel
The post, which received more than 100 likes and nearly 200 shares, got Tamela Mann’s attention and she granted the toddler’s wish.
“Last week we saw a picture circulating around of a brave little boy named Markel,” she wrote in a video caption on her Facebook page. He is battling a cancer that has caused him to go blind and the cancerous tumors have spread to his brain…One of his wishes was to sing Take me to the King with Tam and today his wish came true! He is such a sweet and FUNNY kid!”
