Drake visits 11-year-old patient who invited him to her birthday
CHICAGO (AP) - A suburban Chicago girl awaiting a heart transplant has danced her way into a meeting with Drake.
The Canadian rapper visited 11-year-old Sofia Sanchez on Monday at the Lurie Children's Hospital during his tour's stop in Chicago. He shared photos on Instagram, saying they had talked about Justin Bieber and basketball.
Drake visited Sanchez after seeing the Downers Grove girl's video version of his song, "In My Feelings," which inspired a viral dance craze.
In her video, Sanchez dances in a hospital hallway while tethered to her IV pump, and she says she loves Drake's music and asks if he can come cheer her up for her birthday. She turned 11 on Saturday.
Today, Lurie Children’s Hospital heart transplant patient Sofia Sanchez, who turned 11 on Saturday, had one of her birthday wishes come true– a surprise visit from Drake, @champagnepapi. #all4your1 #drake #kikichallenge
