CHICAGO – A Chicago girl who is awaiting a heart transplant has danced her way into a meeting with Drake.

The Canadian rapper visited 11-year-old Sofia Sanchez on Monday at the Lurie Children's Hospital during his tour's stop in Chicago.

Drake visited Sanchez after seeing the Downers Grove girl's video version of his song, "In My Feelings," which inspired a viral dance craze. In her video, Sanchez dances in a hospital hallway while tethered to her IV pump, and she said she loves Drake's music and asks if he can come cheer her up for her birthday.

He shared photos on Instagram, saying they had talked about Justin Bieber and basketball.

She turned 11 on Saturday.
