Jacob Karam, Memphis Quarterback, Plays Duet With 11-Year-Old Girl Who Has Leukemia (VIDEO)

Quarterback Jacob Karam set a University of Memphis record for completion percentage last season. But the connection he made with 11-year-old Breanna Bercegeay is worth a highlight reel of its own.

Karam was playing piano for the kids at St. Judes Children's Research Hospital in Memphis, Tenn. on Monday, when Breanna sat down with him for a duet. It went into overtime -- 10 songs, according to the YouTube description.

Watch the video above as Karam and Breanna team up on "Price Tag." The heartwarming clip is gaining big yardage on social media.

According to the "Cheering For Breanna" Facebook page, Breanna was diagnosed with acute myelogenous leukemia -- an aggressive cancer of the blood and bone marrow -- in June. She's a cheerleader who "LOVES" to cheer, the page says.

Both Breanna and her football-hero song partner just gave us all something to cheer about.
