Stormzy has gone the extra mile for one of his fans, performing at a funeral in London following a request on social media. Twitter user @GodsSonNB7 tweeted at Stormzy on December 15, explaining that his father had recently passed away. He wanted to ask the grime MC if he'd perform "Blinded By Your Grace," a song of his they both loved, at his funeral. "Don't worry if you can't," he wrote. "I just thought I'd try my luck."

Stormzy replied a day later and subsequently appeared at the funeral, which took place on Thursday, December 21. Stormzy has yet to comment on his act of kindness. The FADER has reached out for comment.
