今週初め、Drakeが今年初のシングルヒット"God 's Plan"のミュージックビデオ撮影を南フロリダにある中学校で撮影を行った。撮影に熱狂する生徒と教師の模様を収めたビデオがツイッターに投稿された。



小切手を受け取った学生は、マイアミ大学に通うDestiny Jamesさんという女性。彼女は、片親家庭に育ち、家庭の経済状況が厳しいなか、大学に通っていた。昨年、奨学金を受け取っていたが、その支給も終わろうとしていたところだったという。そこにDrakeが駆け付けた。


This happened today. I applied to scholarships last year for which I had to write an essay. I received those scholarships and thought that was the end of it. Apparently, my essay and my story made it to other departments. I was contacted this weekend about doing a video speaking about where I come from, things I've been through, and why it is so important for scholarship donors to continue to donate. This was the surprise the whole time. Drake told me that he has read great things about me and appreciates how hard I've worked through so many trials and decided to give me $50K for my tuition. @champagnepapi THANK YOU SO MUCH!!' You don't understand what this means to me! I would've never imagined this happening to me. I'm just a girl from Denmark, SC that wants to MAKE IT and be somebody and for you to see my hard work means the world. Thank you so much. God I thank you. You are so great and amazing! Thank you for blessing me when I thought my hard work was going unnoticed. I'm living out my dreams. God's Plan 🙏🏾
