Grab your Kleenex, folks. Even as a social media novice, Beyoncé reigns supreme in the way she uses Tumblr. Although one aspect is to give fans an intimate glimpse into her incredibly private life, the other is to inspire. Bey recently used her Tumblr page to pen an open letter to Timmy Kelly, a blind fan with cerebral palsy. She met Timmy Kelly backstage at the GRAMMYs when he was only 13. According to her letter, he inspired her because of his love of music. Five years later Timmy has graduated high school and was accepted to Temple University’s Boyer College of Music and Dance. Queen Bey wants everyone to know, if Timmy can do it, you can too.
In the letter Bey writes, “The first time I met Timmy Kelly was in 2007, backstage at the Grammys. He was only 13 and he touched my heart with his voice and his love of music and life. He is 18 now and he’s just graduated high school – I’m so proud of him! Timmy was born blind, and with cerebral palsy. But this never slowed him down – he has proven to everyone, that anything is possible if you believe in yourself and work hard.”
Timmy’s story of perseverance is beyond amazing. For a superstar of Bey’s caliber to take the time from her life to recognize him for his achievements is a testament to why people adore her. It’s also why there’s never been any chatter of Bey being nothing but one of the sweetest women in Hollywood. Congrats, Timmy! Thanks for the inspiration, Bey.
