Twitter Hashtag Attempts to Get Drake to Sing for Deceased Fan at Her Funeral
A rapidly rising hashtag on Twitter today (July 14) is asking Drake a simple question: sing for a deceased fan at her funeral.
The hashtag #DrakeSingforJasmin trended Monday in an attempt to get the rapper to perform at the funeral of Jasmin Grady, 20, from Wilmington, N.C., who died Sunday morning (July 13) in a car crash.
Local CBS station WILM reported that Grady was a passenger in a car that ran off the road and overturned. She was not wearing a seatbelt.
Since her death, the hashtag has begun to receive national attention; it was reportedly Grady’s wish to have Drake sing at her funeral, according to a tweet from Twitter user @DJKGRADY910, a relative.
I wanna make Jasmin wish come true , have drake sing at her funeral 🙏—

At press time (5 p.m. ET), the hashtag was still No. 1 in the United States, a spot it has been at or near for most of the day.
