We’ve heard of Simon Cowell’s generosity before, but it turns out that wasn’t just a one-time thing. The former American Idol judge granted a wish for a young girl with a terminal brain tumor.

Five-year-old Bethany Fenton got to visit the set of Britain’s Got Talent just before last Saturday’s finale show. She got to meet the contestants, and even got to sing for her favorite judge, Cowell.

“I loved them all, especially Kieran, who asked for my wristband to give us both luck,” Fenton told Britain’s Daily Mail. “Simon let me sing ‘Twinkle Twinkle Little Star’ to him. He’s so nice and I love him.”

Fenton passed away on Tuesday, but her family said her last days were filled with joy – thanks in part to Cowell.

“Her dad said that she had done what she always wanted to do, meet Simon Cowell and sing to him. She had achieved her big ambition and was now ready to depart this earth,” a family spokesman said.

Our hearts go out to Fenton’s family. (PopEater)
