Drake took time out of his busy schedule to make a young woman named Kennedy Brown's ultimate wish come true. Kennedy is a 15-year-old girl from Houston, Texas who has been battling brain cancer for the past two years. She is currently living in hospice care and her wish was to receive a message or visit from her favorite artist, Drake.
Kennedy's classmates felt so deeply for her they planned a special day for her at Carnegie Vanguard High School where she had a special prom, was crowned prom queen, and had a private graduation ceremony. But her biggest wish was to meet Drake, and so her classmates started the hashtag #DrakeForKen to get the attention of the star.
Drake did find out about Kennedy, and then traveled to Houston to see her and shared a special day with her as documented by Drake's Instagram photos. In one captions Drake said:
"All These Beautiful People #Drakeforken Turned Into#Kenfordrake I Am So Happy"
It seems not only did Kennedy have an unforgettable day, but Drake did as well. It's touching seeing artists take time to touch the live's of their fans..
