Drake Pens Emotional Message To His Fans In The Wake Of Florida School Shooting

He has a simple request.

Published February 16, 2018

Drake is doing a whole lot of good lately.

On Friday morning, the Grammy winning artist released an emotional music video for his recent single, "God's Plan" in which he gave the entire video's budget to charity. Hours later, he penned an emotional message on Instagram, in the wake of the tragic shooting at Florida's Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, encouraging fans to give back to their community in their own way.

Drake took to Instagram to encourage his followers to go out into their community and do any kind of good. He then asked his fans to "please tag me in it somehow so I can see all the love being spread."

He isn't only asking his fans to give back, he's leading by example. On Friday morning, Drake's label, OVO Sound released the official music video for "God's Plan," in which Drake himself gave nearly a million dollars to the people of Miami in various forms of charity. 

"The budget for this video was $996,631.90," the video began, "We gave it all away. Don't tell the label."

It's great to see an artist of Drake's stature use his fame to help people in need. We can't wait to see what kind of good deeds his video and emotional message inspires.
