The comments that have been made are unreal. Everyone acts as if they are not human any more and acts as if it is impossible to make dreams come true. The real Reality is that if you truly want something go after it. Believing something is impossible just shows how small of a thinker you are and how confined in a box you are. If everyone believed that what they want is only a fantasy and not reality then Bill Gates would not be here. Steve Jobs would not be here. Most of the artist that grew up in a life that would have made you cry everyday would not be here. They are who they are today only because they had a dream and they executed everything they needed to make it come to past. No one wants entitlement nor to be a god because their is only one true and living God. The only thing that anybody wanted was someone who loved Drake more than anything, someone who was saving up for his next concert so that she could finally get the chance she always wanted to see him, someone who Photoshopped her pictures with him because she adored him that much, to get her last dream. It is never too much. Nothing in this world is ever too much in this crazy society we live in. If it were your loved ones and they had a final dream and didn’t live to see it out, you would try your best to make it happen even if all else failed because it is not about what the dream is, but the fact, it was their last dream. This is not about entitlement or trying to be god or even trying to use her as an opportunity to see him. Not to mention it would not have been for free. This is about someones LAST DREAM! One more thing, yes she would have been able to witness it because only her bodied died. Her spirit lives on, not only in everyone that loved her, but also in Heaven. If you truly do believe in God then you should know that she would have been their to witness it. I’m sure God will would have allowed her to see the turnout for her being that God gives us the desires of our heart and that is the Word of God. If you believe in evil and the devil then you must believe in good and God, and to believe in either you must know that she would have been there to see it even if she was not physically present. It is a home-going celebration and not a funeral. A celebration of life. Everyone is so traditional these days but God said do not mourn but celebrate and again that is the Word of God. Society loves to blow things out of proportion and dilute any situation. Just let it be. Especially in situations like this snide comments definitely are not needed because it is ungodly and inhumane. It was a LAST DREAM nothing more nothing less.

I feel like even if drake doesn’t perform at her funeral, he should attend to show support for a fan, but it would be nice if he sings since thats what she wanted.

He should just record a video to be played at her funeral.

It is very tragic this young lady died so young but to have Drake perform at her funeral does not seem like a good idea, instead it seems like a ploy. It would take away from this young lady to have drake there for reasons like the comment above…people would come for drake not to honor her life. People die every day unfortunately so what makes this death so remarkable a celebrity should sing for free? What did she do in her lifetime that warrants such attention? Was she an active volunteer saving needy children? Was she herself battling some terminol illness that had affect her entire life? I’m not trying to down play this death at all…I’m just saying let’s be realistic because where will this end?

FYI….
He is offered 100,000 by friends to sing at her funeral. She was a fan, I think that should be enough to warrant attention! Celebrities sing at rich brats birthdays, etc all the time, so why shouldn’t he sing at the funeral of a fan, especially when he is being offered money. Think twice next time before posting such a heartless statment…smdh!

Why give him money? That money can go to her family. Why give it to Drake who is already a millionaire?

Heartless? smdh…. what’s heartless is this ploy you guys have come up with using this girls death since I highly doubt she was on her death bed and her last breathe was used to say “ask drake to perform at my funeral”… The pay is not important but to know they are offering 100000 to Drake to sing shows just how sad this situation is. Why not give that money to her family, cover funeral costs, start a scholarship foundation in her name, raise awareness for safe driving to stop these kinds of tragedies from happening, sooo many other things than to waste it on getting Drake to preform. Like I said, her funeral should be about her, her life, and her accomplishments not that she attracted enough attention for Drake to preform/attend so if that’s heartless then you must not really be concerned with the life that was lost. I think it would be nice of him to send flowers or write a note to the family but performing is too far in my opinion because again, people, including young people, die every day and their families aren’t begging celebrities to perform…it would be unrealistic for celebrities to preform at every tragedy and it is exploitation if more families use their tragedies for a chance to meet their favorite celebrities…

It would be nice if he did sing. Entertainers with hearts like that go far in life and career.

I went to high school with Jasmin. She was one of those people that everybody loved and respected. She deserves this for sure.

This is a sad topic but I do not think a celebrity should come sing at a funeral, that’s a bit much. A note, flowers or a video would be better. I think if he do sing this will start something and I agree with a few people on the post, Drake singing will take away from this girl. I have a twitter account & I did not retweet I do not agree and I know a few people who do not as well. My prayers are with her family and friends but LET’S LEAVE DRAKE OUT OF THIS!
