Drake has a heart as big as his talent!

The “Hold On (We’re Going Home)” artist surprised a 15-year-old Houston fan named Kennedy Brown who is battling brain cancer on Saturday, after her friends started the hashtag  #DrakeForKen to get his attention … and it worked!

According to the local ABC affiliate in Houston, Drake called up Kennedy’s father, Tony, on Friday to say he was going to pay the teen a visit the next day.

On Monday morning, Tony called in to On Air with Ryan Seacrest and gave us details on their special meeting. Listen to it below:

Drake shared their special moment on his Instagram page. “Me and this beautiful angel Kennedy #kenfordrake,” he captioned the photo below.

In a funny moment, Kennedy asked Drake if she could touch his eyebrows, which he joked on Instagram was “#accessgranted.”
