Drake Gives Back To Dying Fan
Drake does have a history, however, of reaching out and giving back to his fans – especially those in need.
Last April, Drake gave a surprise visit to a young woman named Kennedy Brown after her friends began the online campaign #DrakeForKen. Kennedy was battling stage-four brain cancer and made a dying wish of meeting the superstar.
Our thoughts are with Jasmin’s family and friends during this difficult time.
So sad, HollywoodLifers. Do you think Drake should sing at Jasmin’s funeral? Let us know.
