Daddy Yankee stopped at a hospital in Spain while on tour to visit a special young fan.
The “Despacito” singer recently sang his worldwide hit with Andrea, a cancer patient at Madrid’s Hospital Universitario La Paz.
The hit single by Daddy Yankee and Luis Fonsi has already been called the song of the summer, landing at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 seven weeks in a row, thanks to a remix featuring Justin Bieber.
Andrea had no problem at all singing Daddy Yankee’s part in “Despacito”, with Daddy Yankee filling in for Fonsi.
The impromptu performance was filmed, and shows the two laughing and having a great time while singing the song.
El Pais reported that Daddy Yankee’s team reached out to the hospital to arrange the visit so the star could show his support for the children at the hospital’s pediatric Oncology/Hematology unit.
“It was a revolution! The singer was committed and super caring with the parents and patients,” said Lourdes Amayas, Press Chief of Juegaterapia, a Spanish organization that works on donations and projects to help young cancer patients.
“Andrea is an incredible girl. She has a strength and vitality that cannot be described. She’s [a] superfan [of Daddy Yankee]. She is very shy, but she felt so good that she went for it. And besides being a real fighter, she sings very well. We are all excited,” said Amayas.
