Rihanna Mourns Loss of 11-Year-Old Broadway Singer

Rihanna is mourning the loss of 11-year-old Broadway singer Shannon Tavarez, who battled acute myeloid leukemia.

Shannon, who performed as young Nala in The Lion King, captured the hearts of Rihanna and Alicia Keys, both of whom worked to get the word out about bone marrow donation to help those fighting leukemia.

“Just got off of a plane ride and got horrible news that our little star Shannon [Tavarez] has lost her battle against leukemia,” Ri tweeted. “Way too soon…keep her family in your prayers.”

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Shannon‘s family and friends.
