Drake visits Miami High School, University of Miami
It’s not every day that a famous rapper shows up to a high school to shoot a music video.
But that’s what happened Monday afternoon at Miami Senior High, where the students got a surprise visit from Drake. The rapper was there to shoot a video for his hit song “God’s Plan”, which recently debuted to the top of the charts.
Drake performed on a crane over the school’s baseball field as a drone flew over to record the concert. A video posted to social media shows students going crazy with excitement as they sing and film the performance on their smartphones.
The rapper also presented the school with a check for $ 25,000 and said he would help design new school uniforms, according to a spokesperson for the Miami-Dade School District.
Edgar Grant Santiago, a Miami high school alumnus, said he rushed to school when a friend told him about Drake’s visit.
âThe next thing you know is the student crowd and a few alumni went crazy when he played the music while recording,â Santiago said in a post. âIt was amazing and unexpected. Where can you say Drake went to your school? At Miami Senior High, it’s over there. It was truly God’s plan to bless the school.
Then Drake made another surprise visit – this time to the University of Miami. There, the rapper awarded a student a $ 50,000 scholarship outside the Frost School of Music, according to The Miami Hurricane. The newspaper identified the lucky recipient as biology student Destiny James. Next, the singer performed in front of a crowd on the Moss Terrace of the Donna E. Shalala Student Center.
When the rapper left campus, the students gathered around the motorcade and chased him down Miller Drive, The Miami Hurricane reported.
