Addy's wish was to be a pop star in her own music video. Thanks to Make-A-Wish, she got to do that while performing her favourite singer, Katy Perry's song Roar. No tiger stand-off, roaming the jungle, or 'Kitty Purry' for that matter, but Addy charmed us all with how natural she was, purple wig and all.

When the five-year-old girl was diagnosed with stage IV cancer, she would spend hours drawing, singing, and dancing during her hospital visits and treatments. Roar gave Addy the spirit to fight and beat cancer, and we love that this adorable music video is her victory song. She even had her own vocal track added in. What a brave, talented little girl. Hand us some tissues, please...

Make-A-Wish is a non-profit organisation that arranges for children and teenagers aged between three and seventeen, who are living with life-threatening illnesses.
