Beyoncé gave a terminally ill fan named Taylon Davis a surprise she will never forget. The "Yonce" singer shared a dance with the 12-year-old girl during the singer's Mrs. Carter Show World Tour.

Taylon was diagnosed with an inoperable tumor and wanted to dance with Beyoncé as her dying wish. So Make-A-Wish invited the girl and her family to a show earlier this month.

Young Taylon jumped for joy at the start of the Beyoncé concert surprise. Later in the show, the singer came over to Taylon and gave her a big hug. The two then shared a brief duet and danced together on the Destiny's Child classic "Survivor." Beyoncé 's surprise brought Taylon to tears.

"It was shocking," Taylon told CBS Sacramento after Beyoncé surprised the fan. "I was like 'Mom, this is real. I'm actually seeing her, and she's talking to me, and I get to sing with her and dance with her. This is really real. ... I was just sitting there shaking, I was so nervous. I didn't wanna be speechless because this was my wish, and I wanted to actually talk to her. So I wasn't that shy. Of course, I wasn't scared to dance, because I like dancing."

Beyoncé posted the video of her and Taylon on the singer's YouTube page. Watch Beyoncé surprise the fan in the video below.

Beyoncé also surprised the young fan with some gifts after the concert. The 12-year-old received an autographed photo and a book full of pictures from the tour.

 "Here's a little girl literally fighting for her life," Ivy McGregor from Philanthropy Program Partnerships said in the Beyoncé surprise video. "'Tomorrow's not promised, next week's not promised, but right now I'm here,' and her thought that will forever stay with me is 'since I'm here I might as well live.'"

This is not the first time Beyonce has shown her giving side during the holidays. Last week, the singer bought $50 Wal-Mart gift cards for 750 shoppers. This may have been a slight towards Wal-Mart's rival, Target, which refused to carry the singer's recent self-titled album. But Wal-Mart had no reservations about selling the record, which was first released on iTunes.
