She's waiting for a heart transplant, so she hopes to get a new heart soon.

A little girl's birthday wish came true this weekend after rapper Drake paid her a visit while she waits in the hospital for a heart transplant.

Drake chose to visit Sanchez because of her inspiring video of the "In My Feelings" challenge.

Sanchez and Drake must have had some kind of connection because the Toronto native posted a photo with her including the caption, "Me and my love Sofia talking about Bieber and Owls and Basketball", including three blue hearts. She also taped a video message from her hospital bed asking Drake to visit her when he was in town for his concert at the United Center.

The surgery often serves as a bridge to heart transplantation and is only performed four times a year at the Lurie Children's Hospital.

The youngster recorded her take on the viral In My Feelings Challenge which has seen people jumping out of a (slowly) moving vehicle and walking alongside to the lyrics "Kiki, do you love me?"

This story has been corrected to show the MTV Video Music Awards were on Monday and Madonna's post was on Tuesday. However soon after Madonna had finished the speech, fans were quick to slam her tribute for being self-indulgent.

But the week ended with reports of an SEC inquiry into the tweets Musk posted that sent that Tesla stock soaring. Her description accompanying the open letter describes her as a "flat shoe advocate and sleep evangelist".

Who is Omarosa? And why is she causing such a stir?
Before joining the administration, Manigault Newman handled African-American outreach for Trump's presidential campaign. So we'll see what she wears to that.

"When you come here, I can show you".

"You asked me to come, I'm here". In a video on Instagram, the rapper shared that he cancelled his show just to visit her.

Sofia underwent open heart surgery three weeks ago in order to connect a mechanical pump to help support her heart and blood flow.

In another photo, Sofia poses with a Scorpion hat, that's clearly her new favourite accessory. He later went to the University of Miami where he gave one student a $50,000 (£38,960) scholarship.

The 31-year-old rapper is no stranger to doing good deeds for others (just watch his video for "God's Plan" where he gives away $1 million).
