It's no secret teenagers across the world love the band One Direction.

The band was 15-year-old Nicole Wilson's favorite. The Plano student loved the five British boys. She was excited when she got a big surprise -- tickets to their concert -- for her birthday in August.

Unfortunately, Nicole won't be able to see her favorite band perform. The Rice Middle School student died Saturday due to complications from diabetes.

Nicole's sister put out a tweet Monday night, asking One Direction to dedicate a song to her sister at their upcoming concert in North Texas. Since then, the tweet has gone viral.

News 8 spoke with Nicole's sister Kelly on Daybreak via Skype.

Join the movement on Twitter by tweeting @OneDirection, using the hashtag #SingForNicole. You can also donate to a Camp Sweeney scholarship fund in Nicole's name by going here
