‘I’m here…’ Drake cancels concert to visit 11-year-old girl in hospital


Sophia Sanchez is currently in hospital awaiting a heart transplant, and has two very special wishes: to meet Drake and get a new heart. 

The 11-year-old is such a huge fan of the In My Feelings singer that she did the Kiki Challenge while hooked up to her IVF.

A video of her dancing was posted to social media.

And it is thanks to this video that the two of them met.

After seeing her dance, Drake decided that he would take a trip to Lurie's Children Hospital of Chicago, where the pair hung out and bonded over basketball, owls and Justin Bieber!

The young girl, who, according to the MailOnline, has cardiomyopathy and underwent open heart surgery just three weeks ago, was in absolute shock when the 31-year-old walked up to her.

"Oh my god," she screams, before giving him a hug.

"You asked me to come; I'm here" he says to her, like it's a normal thing for a superstar to pop in and say hey. 

The two chatted about Riverdale, which the rapper has seen "once or twice", took selfies, and exchanged autographs! 

The rapper sang her God's Plan and gifted her with merchandise. 

But the sweetness doesn't stop there!

The rapper wasn't just going past the hospital and decided to pop in – he cancelled a concert just so he could meet her. 

Like, melting!
