CORINTH, Miss. (WTVA) - A Corinth native who battled cancer will perform alongside country music star Brad Paisley.
Doctors diagnosed Addie Pratt with leukemia when she was a freshman in high school.

She is now cancer-free and attends Ole Miss.
She met Paisley at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital during her battle with cancer.
She thought nothing else of their meeting until her mother called, asking if she wanted to sing alongside Paisley.
“You’re kidding?” she thought.
However, her mother was not joking.
She and Paisley will perform the song he wrote about the children he met at St. Jude.
Their performance will be shown during his ABC special which airs Tuesday night at 7:00 on ABC-WTVA.
