"I'm so happy for you."
Earlier this month, Drake surprised a young fan named Sofia Sanchez during her stay at Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital in Chicago.
Eleven-year-old Sofia was diagnosed with cardiomyopathy, which results in heart failure. Sofia took to her Instagram page this week to share the news that she had received a new heart.
During the clip, Sofia reveals that her two birthday wishes were to meet Drake - which happened - and to receive a new heart, before her mother tells her the good news.
"I am getting a heart mom? Oh my god!" the young girl squeals before embracing her mother in delight.
"Sofia is out of surgery! Surgery went well. She received a really good, strong heart," reads a message on her Go Fund Me page. "They will keep her asleep for the remainder of the night. Thank you for your prayers. God is good."
Upon hearing the news, Drake addressed the audience during a show at New York City's Madison Square Garden, a tour stop of the Aubrey & the Three Migos Tour.
"God the other day blessed her with a new heart," the Canadian rapper began. "So, Sofia, if they get this clip out to you, I love you and I'm happy for you."
And the next track that played? 'God's Plan', very fittingly.
