Selena Gomez Dances with Sick 6-Year Old, Moves Internet to Tears

Selena Gomez for all the wins, people.

Each and every last one of them.

The singer has shared a video on her Instagram page that features her dancing with a very special fan.

Her name is Audrey Nethery. She is six years old. And she sadly suffers from Diamond Blackfan Anemia, which is an inherited type of bone marrow failure.

There is no cure for the illness right now.

But that hasn't stopped Audrey from living it up!

First, she went viral for her dance moves in Zumba, which her parents often post on their Facebook page dedicated to raising awareness of DBA.

Then, she appeared in April on Rachael Ray's show, Rachael. To wit:

The celebrity chef also raised $10,000 at the time to help fund research into Audrey's disease.

Fast forward to Wednesday, meanwhile, and Audrey having a chance to meet Gomez, hanging out with the artist backstage and breaking out into a dancing duet with her.

"Finally got to meet this sweetheart –she owned it fully," Gomez, captioned a video of her getting down with the toddler on social media.

Take a look at their fun routine, set to "Love You Like A Love Song," now:

"Every time I see her dance, even when it's just in her class, it makes me cry," Julie Haise, Audrey's mother, has written in the past about her daughter's routines.

"When she's dancing, she's happy and brings so much joy to everyone watching."

It appears, meanwhile, as if Selena's concerts are the place to be for anyone who wants to break into dance.

Or at least for Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston when they want to break into dance.

Just look at this new couple go!

Even more importantly than Hollywood's new It Couple, however, we want to take a moment and wish the very best to Audrey Nethery.

She is braver than we will ever be.
