MIAMI (AP) — Drake had no trouble drawing crowds as he visited Miami to shoot a music video.

Images shared by fans on social media show Miami Senior High students singing along as Drake performs “God’s Plan” from a crane above the school’s baseball field. A drone captured Monday’s surprise concert by the rap superstar.

The Miami Herald reports that before he left, Drake gave the school a $25,000 check and said he would help design new school uniforms. School alum Edgar Grant Santiago rushed over when a friend told him of the visit, and said “that was truly God’s plan to bless the school.”

Drake also gave an impromptu concert at the University of Miami, where he awarded a $50,000 scholarship to a lucky student.
