RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - A Midlothian native got a chance to sing a duet with Garth Brooks while he was in Richmond this weekend.
Danielle El-Jor, who attends Longwood University, was set to audition for The Voice but was diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma back in 2014. Her first chemo treatment was scheduled on the day of her audition.
El-Jor posted an article to The Rotunda, a Longwood University publication, as a part of the school's 'Humans of Longwood' project:
El-Jor is now in remission and performed a song with Brooks during his matinee concert Sunday.
While Brooks was in town, he hosted a sports camp for young athletes.
80 kids of all ages, spent the day learning some of life's most valuable lessons through Garth Brooks Teammates for Kids Foundation.
"You stand a chance of being something greater as a part than by yourself," said Brooks.
Brooks will be a guest on The Voice starting Monday at 8 p.m.
