Drake makes surprise hospital visit to sick girl

Drake has granted the wish of a little girl who longed to meet him as she stayed in hospital waiting for a new heart.

Ann & Robert H Lurie Children's Hospital in Chicago posted a video of 11-year-old patient Sofia Sanchez doing the viral dance to the rapper's song In My Feelings.

In a separate video, the girl asks Drake to visit her over the weekend, as he was performing in Chicago.

Sofia, who needs a heart transplant after being born with cardiomyopathy, a condition which makes it hard for the heart to pump blood, got her wish.

The rapper surprised the girl in hospital, posting pictures of them both on Instagram.

One was captioned: "Me and my love Sofia talking about Bieber and Owls and Basketball".

In another post, he simply uploaded a picture of Sofia wearing a baseball cap with "scorpion" written on it - the name of Drake's album, along with love emojis.

Drake has form when it comes to delivering random acts of kindness.

When shooting for his music video in Miami earlier this year, the One Dance singer paid for the shopping of an entire supermarket.

The Canadian rapper has also paid for scholarships and donated money to schools.
