Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins passed away suddenly on Friday, but he was able to make a little girl’s dream come true just days before his death.

On Friday, the band announced that Hawkins had died hours before a scheduled appearance in Bogota, Colombia.

Earlier this week, a 9-year-old girl named Emma Sofia went viral when she tried to get Hawkins’ attention by drumming outside the band’s hotel room in Paraguay.

Hawkins heard about Sofia’s drumming and went out to meet her in person.
