Beyonce pays tribute as Instagram star Lyric 'Yhung' dies at 13

Beyonce has paid tribute after Instagram star Lyric 'Yhung' Chanel died, at the age of just 13.

The social media personality is believed to have died on Friday after a lengthy battle with brain cancer and anaplastic ependymoma.

And when news of her tragic death was shared online, 39-year-old Beyonce made an incredible gesture in her honour.

Beyonce posted a video to her YouTube account that featured a collection of the social media figure's photos and videos.

The singer also recorded a medley of Chanel's favourite songs, including Halo, Brown Skin Girl and Love On Top.

She changed the lyrics of Love On Top as a tribute to the late social media personality, switching out the word 'baby' for "Lyric".

At the end of the video, Beyonce shared a message to Chanel that said "I love you with all of my heart". 

The pair first came into contact when Beyonce reached out to Chanel in September last year on a video of the teen singing Love On Top on her Instagram account.

In response to the video, Beyonce sent Chanel a bouquet and a kind note which said: "'I was so moved to see how these lyrics inspired you, not nearly as much as you inspired me.

"I can't wait to meet you one are a survivor."
