With the release of his latest hit album, DAMN, Kendrick Lamar has gone on to leave an even greater mark on the music industry. While on tour in Dallas, Texas, Kendrick surprised one of his fans with a heartfelt surprise.
“Day one” fan, Jennifer Phillips suffered from a car accident that caused a major spinal cord injury back in 2007. Although Jennifer was severely hurt she still made sure to attend many of Kendrick’s concerts (eight to be exact). She said the only thing that was stopping her was a car. She went on to create a GoFundMe account to raise money for a vehicle of her liking.
Kendrick took matters into his own hands by deleting Jennifer’s GoFundMe account to purchase the van for her. In addition to the car was an autographed DAMN Tour jacket that read, “Thank you for always supporting me. You’re an inspiration for me. You are strong and positive. You’re kind and beautiful. For all the years of inspiring me, the least I can do is make sure you're comfortable driving the city. A gift from me to you. You’re always appreciated! — K. Lamar.”
“I've been to every show Kendrick has had in Dallas,” she wrote on Instagram. I was a big fan of music and concerts before my injury but I never supported and loved a label like theirs before. Of course, they have great music but they are also great people. I never supported them for any benefits like this lol. Their music and shows were enough for me. But this is amazing and I thank you from the bottom of my heart. I love you all and always will. Thank God for you Kendrick and I will continue to pray for you. And like I said, next time I'm driving myself to your show lol. Thanks to the whole team!”
