Drake's Big Surprise
Drake visited the University of Miami on Monday to shoot a music video for his new single “God’s Plan”. Hundreds of students crowded onto the campus to get a glimpse of the superstar. Some even went so far as to climb onto the roof of the food court for a good view.
In addition to partying it up with the students, Drake also wanted to reward James for her essay and surprise her with a massive $50,000 tuition check.
“Apparently, my essay and my story made it to other departments,” says James. “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 – [but] 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.”
“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, South Carolina that wants to MAKE IT and be somebody and for [Drake] to see my hard work means the world."
