Earlier last week, news arose that a 17-year-old student named Jamal Utton from London had passed while on a school rugby trip to Vancouver Island, British Columbia. The teenager was a huge fan of Drake, and his friends and family rallied with a #DrakeNoticeJamal hashtag campaign in an attempt to get the attention of the Canadian artist. After over 30,000 tweets, comments and reposts, Drake finally uploaded a photo of Utton on his Instagram page. Many were touched by the simple act of kindness, and have been tweeting their thanks to Drake. Take a look at the Instagram post below.

Heard this young man was a big fan. Rest In Peace Jamal. Watch over me from way up above!
