Drake was deeply affected by a news report on the challenges faced by the Philadelphia students that he decided to donate $75,000 to help create the space at Strawberry Mansion High School, district officials said.
“We thought we were going to be ready to go in September. They’ve been dying to get in” to the studio, Wayman said of the students. When Drizzy made an appearance at the high school during a concert tour in 2013, he surprised students by announcing the completion of the new studio.
“This is about you. This is about your principal. This is about your future,” Drake said as his guests screamed with joy. “I love you. I care about you. I want to see you succeed.”
With the new studio in place, students are excitedly ready to showcase their talents and stay focused on completing school.
