Drake pays surprise visit to terminally ill fan

Rapper Drake helped to make a terminally ill fan's dreams come true by visiting her home in Texas over the weekend (12Apr14).

Kennedy Brown's friends and family used the social media tag #DrakeForKen in a bid to appeal to the Started from the Bottom hitmaker to pay a visit to the 15 year old, who suffers from an inoperable brain tumour.

After learning of Brown's condition, Drake agreed to make a personalised video for the teenager, but ended showing up at her home in Houston, much to her surprise.

Posting photos of the two together on Instagram.com, the rapper writes, "Me and this beautiful angel Kennedy, kenfordrake".

He adds, "All these beautiful people drakeforken turned into kenfordrake I am so happy."

After the visit, Drake headed to the California desert to join singer Jhene Aiko onstage at the Coachella music festival for a performance of their collaboration From Time.

He wasn't the star's only special guest during her Sunday (13Apr14) gig - rapper/actor Childish Gambino also made an appearance for Bed Peace.
