A rapidly rising hashtag on Twitter today (July 14) is asking Drake a simple question: sing for a deceased fan at her funeral.

The hashtag #DrakeSingforJasmin trended Monday in an attempt to get the rapper to perform at the funeral of Jasmin Grady, 20, from Wilmington, N.C., who died Sunday morning (July 13) in a car crash.

Local CBS station WILM reported that Grady was a passenger in a car that ran off the road and overturned. She was not wearing a seatbelt.

Since her death, the hashtag has begun to receive national attention; it was reportedly Grady’s wish to have Drake sing at her funeral, according to a tweet from Twitter user @DJKGRADY910, a relative.

At press time (5 p.m. ET), the hashtag was still No. 1 in the United States, a spot it has been at or near for most of the day.
