Drake made a wish come true for a young girl in a serious battle with brain cancer. On Saturday, the rapper made a trip to Houston to visit 15-year-old Kennedy Brown, a high school student and one of his biggest fans.
According to reports, Kennedy’s classmates at Carnegie Vanguard high school pulled off the big move. They threw her a surprise prom and graduation ceremony. Along with the “high school in a day” experience, the friends started the hashtag #DrakeForKen. It soon became trending topic on Twitter and caught the attention of Drake himself! And as they say, the rest was history.
