Drake Pays Tribute To Fans Killed Outside Concert

In response to a recent concert-related tragedy, Drake paid tribute to a mother and daughter who were killed outside of his mid-February, St. Louis, Missouri show.

After leaving the superstar’s February 13 concert, Laticha Bracero and Alyssa Cordova were hit by a speeding car, and during his Wednesday (2.28) gig, Drake gave them a shout-out and encouraged his fans to send love to each other of the victims.

In a video published by TMZ, the multi-Grammy award winner told this Buffalo audience “You never know what somebody else’s reality will be when they walk out of this building.” “So for this moment that all of us are together, all 18,000 people, I want you to turn to somebody that you do not know, I want you to look them in the eyes and I want you to prove that you’re grateful for your life. I want you to take five seconds out of your day to make somebody else’s day. Just show them some love because you never know what comes next.” “I think one of the most important things in life is the idea that you have two choices. You can either wake up every day and you can be a piece of s**t or you can wake up every day and be a decent person. So I appreciate y’all being good to each other. Rest in peace to that young mother and her child.” 

While walking back from the Enterprise Center after the Drake show, Bracero, 42, and Cordova, 21, were fatally struck by a speeding car who ran a red light. Laticha died at the scene, while Alyssa passed away later in the hospital. 

According to TMZ, the suspect, Monte Henderson, 22, has been charged with two counts of involuntary manslaughter and two counts of armed criminal action.
