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 🙏🏾

After performing ‘God’s Plan’ on a raised terrace while the camera’s filmed the crowd, Drake said: “I’ll tell you one thing. I’ve been to a lot of places in the world. I don’t think I’ve ever been to a more current [excited] school than this. I wish you all the best in life, a lot of love, a lot of happiness for you, your friends and your family.”

Representatives from Cash Money Records patrolled the campus with signs stating students entering the area were consenting to be filmed. Footage on social media also shows Drake performing on a hydraulic crane above the crowd.

Meanwhile, Drake recently named LeBron James as one of his biggest inspirations.

The chart-topping rap star has hailed the NBA star after he passed the 30,000 career points milestone, and Drake has admitted he regards LeBron to be one of his heroes. He shared: “Seems like every time we look up, you’re setting another milestone or breaking another record and I always tell you that you’re one of the most inspirational people in my life.”

In fact, Drake said that LeBron’s career achievements encourage him to go into the studio and make new tunes. He told Billboard: “Every time you do something like this I always try to get in the studio and make the song that would go with the moment.”
