  • Drake Gives Over $125000 to Strangers for ''God's Plan'' Music Video

Drake has been in Miami filming a video for his new song "God's plan" which has been killing it on the various airways.

Drake donated $50,000 (£36,000) to a homeless shelter for women and children in Miami, Florida, on Tuesday (06Feb18) as part of his recent charitable spree.

On Monday, he made a $25,000 (£18,000) donation to Miami Senior High School and gave students clothes from his OVO brand before going on to surprise student Destiny Paris James by giving her a $50,000 cheque towards her University of Miami tuition.

"Thank you Drake for the fantastic surprise", the shelter wrote on its Facebook page. "I would've never imagined this happening to me".

"A real king went out and paid for everyone's groceries in the store, all the while encouraging people to buy more lol", one Instagram user wrote alongside a picture with the former Degrassi star. There were about 60 shoppers inside, and one customer's cart totaled $754 ... there's a good chance they loaded up once they saw Drake was footing the bill. "BE GOOD AND IT'LL COME RIGHT BACK AROUND! so much love and bless this man 100 times over for all his generosity ❤". 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. "I'm sure you'll know when this video drops, I hope you're all proud, I hope you have a great year".

This happened today. I applied to scholarships a year ago for which I had to write an essay.

A fan posted a brief video of the touching moment, along with throngs of students running and waiting to catch a glimpse of the superstar.
