Indio, CA, United States (4E) – Lady Gaga took the post of Beyonce for Coachella Valley Music And Arts Festival this year and during her headlining performance, she asked the crowd if it was okay if she sings a song as a tribute to her friend with cancer.

The performance was in Indio, California on April 22 and the 31-year-old shared to the crowd, “My friend Sonja is very sick and I love her so much and if it’s OK with you, I’d like to sing this song for her.” She sang “Edge of Glory” for her friend. While singing “Edge of Glory,” Gaga addressed Sonja Durham directly telling her she feels sorry that her friend does not feel well and that everyone there wished her friend was with them.

Durham was Gaga’s assistant in the past. She is battling stage IV cancer. Since then, they have been friends. They have been close pals for almost 10 years now.

Just last month, Gaga planned the wedding of Durham to her longtime partner, Andre Dubois. Durham took to her blog to say the following, “Believe it or not, it was a fight and almost didn't happen. Literally why it was planned and pulled off in two weeks! Yes, two weeks! Now you can do that when you have amazingly talented event friends and an Angel that tell you she is going to throw you your dream wedding and there are no arguments. So I cried and cried and if you can believe it let go of total control (i know crazy right) sent them my Pinterest and just asked when they wanted me to show up!!!!” Durham also refers to Gaga as her guardian angel.

She also sang her hits like “Bad Romance” and “Born This Way” during her performance and a bonus track from her “Joanne” album titled “Grigio Girls.”
