Drake has paid tribute to a mother and daughter who were tragically struck and killed by a car after attending his concert in St. Louis, Missouri earlier this month.

The rapper, 37, honored the lives of Laticha Bracero, 42, and her daughter Alyssa Cordova, 21, during his show in Buffalo, New York on Wednesday night.

He delivered an impassioned speech, encouraging fans to be ‘grateful for your life’ and to ‘show love’ to the people around them — whether they’re a familiar face or a stranger.

Soon after, Drake gifted $25,000 to a cancer survivor who was waving a sign in the stands.

‘You never know what somebody else’s reality will be when they walk out of this building,’ Drake told the audience, as per footage obtained by TMZ.

He continued: ‘So for this moment let’s get all of us together, all 18,000 people. Turn to somebody that you do not know and 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.

‘Just show some f**king love tonight Buffalo, New York.’

As people began to follow his directions and give each other hugs and handshakes, Drake got inspired even more, yelling out from the stage, ‘That’s what I want to see.’

He then stalked the stage from side-to side trying to encourage fans to all follow suit and show each other a loving gesture.

‘I appreciate that gesture that you’ve done for me. 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,’ he told the fans.

Bracero, 42, and Cordova, 21, were both killed on the early morning of February 14 when the driver of a speeding car struck them just after they left the concert.

In a flash, Henderson’s Jeep Grand Cherokee is seen flying into crossing traffic, initially colliding with the front bumper of another car before careening into the mom and daughter 

Police say 22-year-old Monte Henderson sped through an intersection at over 70mph when he allegedly caused the tragedy.

Two other teen girls and a 61-year-old woman were also hospitalized from the crash.

Henderson survived and was charged with two counts of involuntary manslaughter and two counts of armed criminal action.

However, Judge Annette Llewellyn overlooked a probable cause statement arguing he is a danger to the community, allowing him to be freed on a $20,000 bail, according to STL Today, this week.

Henderson’s bail sparked outrage online after the shocking footage of the crash went viral.

Reported court records showed he was freed two days later after posting 10 percent of his $200,000 bond.

‘Rest in peace to that young mother and her child,’ Drake shared, before taking notice of a female fan holding up a sign revealing that they are a cancer survivor.

‘I got this sign in front of me. I’ve got this sign in front of me and it means a lot,’ the five-time Grammy winner said.

‘This sign right here. I’m sure you can read it on the screen, but if you can’t it says: “I  beat stage 4 cancer just in time to see Drake #godsplan.”‘

A visibly emotional Drake told the audience that ‘everything happens for a reason’ and then announced that he would be gifting the woman $25,000.

So tonight I’d like to give you $25,000,’ he said to her, which earned a roaring applause from the audience.

He honored his word and, according to WVIB in Buffalo, the woman did in fact receive the money.

In what is considered his biggest donation yet, Drake gave a cancer survivor, who only recently completed chemotherapy treatments, $100,000 during his concert in Nashville earlier this month.
