Drake Performs at Bat Mitzvah

  /  02.21.2016

L’chaim! Fresh from NBA All-Star Weekend, Drake made one 13-year-old girl extremely happy when he took a break from Views From the 6 to perform some fan favorites at a bat mitzvah in New York on Saturday (Feb. 20).

Partygoers at the Rainbow Room snapped videos of Drizzy. And in the clips, you can see the 6 God performing hits like “Hotline Bling” and his remix to Fetty Wap’s “My Way.”

Drake has talked about his Jewish roots in the past. “I definitely had a bar mitzvah in an Italian restaurant, mind you, a very nice Italian restaurant,” he told Hot 97’s Peter Rosenberg in a 2009 interview. “The song of the night was Backstreet Boys’ ‘I Want It That Way.'”

In October 2011, Drake got “re-bar mitzvah’d as a re-commitment to the Jewish religion.” That was, at least, the theme for his “HYFR (Hell Ya Fucking Right)” video with Lil Wayne. A throwback clip of young Aubrey Graham dancing at a bar mitzvah also appeared in that vid.

Drake also acted in a bar mitzvah-themed skit when he hosted “Saturday Night Live” in 2014. During his monologue, the “Summer Sixteen” rapper broke it all down with a rap reflecting on his upbringing and mixed background.
