Taylor Hawkins' sudden death has sent shockwaves among his fans. The 50-year-old was in Bogota, Colombia, for the Festival Estéreo Picnic when he was found dead on Friday, March 25, in a hotel where he was staying. His death came just an hour before his performance at the festival alongside with his band Foo Fighters.

But it has been said that days before his shocking death, the cause of which is still unknown, he had made the day of one of his little fans. Reportedly, when Hawkins was in Paraguay, a nine-year-old girl named Emma Sofia drummed outside a hotel, where he and his band members were staying, in an attempt to meet him. And Sofia's dream came true that day as Hawkins came outside to meet her.

The videos and photos of the little girl drumming and meeting Hawkins have gone viral on the internet, attracting a lot of comments. A user tweeted, “Beautiful, she plays like angels, I have to be honest, I don't know if it's because of my age (50) but I didn't know about the band Foo Fighters, but when the trend started in networks due to the death of the drummer I found this preview video, and I understood influence on children and adults, Emma must be.” Another user said, “She fulfilled her dream before his departure #taylorhawkins will be pleased to appreciate her talent and will be lighting her up from above.”
