Drake Surprises Miami High School Students by Shooting a Music Video at Their School — and Donating $25K

Drake made an afternoon drop-in at Miami Senior High on Monday to shoot the visuals for "God's Plan," his latest hit off his new EP, Scary Hours

Drake helped a group of Miami students get over the Monday blues this week when he showed up at their school to film his next music video. The self-proclaimed 6 God made an afternoon drop-in at Miami Senior High to shoot the visuals for “God’s Plan,” the latest hit off his new EP, Scary Hours.

Not content to film in any old locker hallway or geometry classroom, Drake, 31, performed his song on a crane located on the school’s baseball field, while a drone camera captured the proceedings. Thrilled students made videos of their own, many of which were shared to social media.

“It was amazing and unexpected,” Miami Senior High alumnus Edgar Grant Santiago told the Miami Herald. “Where can you say you got Drake to go your school? At Miami Senior High that’s where. That was truly God’s plan to bless the school.”

In addition to an unforgettable memory, the rapper also presented the school with a check for $25,000 — and reportedly offered to help design new school uniforms.

Later that same afternoon, Drake made another surprise appearance at the University of Miami, where he awarded a $50,000 scholarship to one lucky student outside the Frost School of Music.

Before he left, Drake led the assembled crowd through a quick set on the steps of the student center. Apparently, they weren’t ready to let him go — the Miami Hurricane reports that throngs of fans chased his motorcade down the boulevard!

On Tuesday, Drake’s giving continued — he stopped by Lotus House, Miami’s only homeless shelter for women and children. The nonprofit shelter is raising $25 million to expand its facilities, and the rapper came prepared with a $50,000 check in hand. Additionally, Drake handed out $150 Target gift cards to all 130 women already residing at the shelter, and came equipped with toys and games for 140 kids.
