Jay-Z Brings Cancer Survivor Onstage and Hugs It Out at 4:44 Tour Stop in Oakland
JAY-Z's epic 4:44 tour continues to roll on, and at one of its latest stops, the show became even more heartfelt than usual. Pulling up in Oakland, Hov took the time to recognize a very special woman in the audience by inviting her onstage.
The woman, name Christina Cruz, held up a sign that said she beat cancer twice and JAY-Z recognized her perseverance by having her onstage to take a picture. Once she was on the platform with the rap legend, the two hugged it out and had a gentleman that attend the show with her take a picture of the amazing mid-concert moment.
"I see you, I love you," Hov said to Cruz before instructing audience members to help the woman onto the stage. Shortly afterward, the woman was onstage, and the two were hugging it out in what was surely the best photo opportunity of the year. All in all, it was a moment that should be one Cruz remembers for a long time.
This isn't the first bit of sentimentality that's permeated one of Hov's 4:44 tour stops. At his New York City show a couple weeks ago, Jay reunited with his estranged friend and mentor JAZ-O. Before that, the Brooklyn artist stood up for the incarcerated Meek Mill, who many feel have been imprisoned unjustly. Around that same time, Hov also hugged DJ Clark Kent, who helped produce some of the biggest singles of the rapper's early career.
