Maximum respect for this

Stormzy is fast becoming one of our nation’s most-loved individuals.

A true talent, a powerful advocate for mental health and all-around good guy, Stormzy went the extra mile for one of his fans, following up on a Twitter request for him to perform at the funeral of a fan’s dad.

The fan reached out to Stormzy, asking if he would come and perform the song ‘Blinded By Your Grace’ from the rapper’s debut album Gang Signs & Prayer.

“Bro my Dad passed away on the day of my graduation last week Friday,” the fan wrote to Stormzy last week.

“Our favourite song of yours was blinded by your grace. Would love it if you could preform (sic) this at his funeral next Thursday 21st December. Don’t worry if you can’t, I just thought I’d try my luck.”

Stormzy replied, “Follow me so I can dm ya.”

A week later, and Stormzy was pictured performing at the funeral.

What a beautiful thing to do for someone. Maximum respect to Stormzy for doing this.
