Kiki may not love Drake, but Sofia Sanchez sure does.
Sofia Sanchez had just one birthday wish: to meet her idol, Drake. Sanchez, who turned 11 on Saturday, is a patient at Lurie Children’s Hospital in Chicago. The 11-year-old had just undergone open heart surgery and is awaiting a heart transplant.
Weeks after her surgery, Sanchez recorded a video of her doing the famous “In My Feelings” Challenge, which is a dance to Drake’s song “In My Feelings”. Before posting the video, Sanchez made a video message for Drake, where she asks the rapper to celebrate her birthday with her.
“Hi my name is Sofia, and I’m ten years old and I’m about to turn eleven,” Sanchez said. “My birthday’s this Saturday and your concerts this Saturday… I would love if you would celebrate it with me”
As fate would have it, the star just so happened to be in Chicago for a performance at the United Center that very same night. The rapper saw the video and stopped by the hospital, granting Sanchez her birthday wish. During their time together, the artist and Sanchez talked about her love of all things Justin Beiber, basketball, and owls. Drake posted pictures of the visit on his Instagram on Monday.
Birthdays only come once a year and are supposed to be special. For Sofia Sanchez, this is one birthday that she will surely never forget.
