Sassy YouTube Star Adalia Rose Has Passed Away

Teen YouTube star Adalia Rose Williams, known for her sassiness and awesome dance moves, has passed away, aged 15.

Adalia lived with Hutchinson-Gilford progeria syndrome, a rare early-ageing condition that affects fewer than 500 people worldwide. Her family shared her life on YouTube where close to three million subscribers fell in love with her exuberance.

“January 12, 2022 at 7pm Adalia Rose Williams was set free from this world,” a message on her Instagram account reads.

“She came into it quietly and left quietly, but her life was far from it. She touched MILLIONS of people and left the biggest imprint in everyone that knew her.”


“She is no longer in pain and is now dancing away to all the music she loves. I really wish this wasn’t our reality but unfortunately it is.”

“We want to say thank you to everyone that loved and supported her. Thank you to all her doctors and nurses that worked for YEARS to keep her healthy. The family would now like to mourn this huge loss in private.”

Thousands of fans shared their condolences to Adalia’s family, including friend and Special Books By Special Kids founder Chris Ulmer who helped share her story:

“Adalia was a funny and kind person who loved to make others smile. I am going to miss her so much.”

Designer Michael Costello who made a custom dress for Adalia’s 13th birthday shared some words of love too:

“Adalia has been so special to every single person that she met. She was an angel. Despite the cards she was dealt with, she had the most positive attitude and such big dreams of helping everyone around her.”
