Hundreds have gathered to celebrate the life of an 8-year-old Rhode Island boy whose dying wish to become famous in China echoed around the world.
A candlelight memorial service was held Sunday night in Westerly to honor Dorian Murray, who died earlier this month after battling a rare form of pediatric cancer.
The Westerly boy's wish in January to be famous in China before he went to heaven took off on social media with the hashtag #DStrong. People around the world including celebrities such as Justin Bieber and Conan O'Brien sent him photos and well wishes.
Flameless candles were illuminated during the service, and a local singer performed a song she wrote for Dorian called "Never Giving Up (#DSTRONG Song)."
Dorian's parents say they'll continue to spread the #DStrong message.
