Drake has warmed fans' hearts after going on a spate of heart-warming acts around Miami in recent weeks, including treating a hotel maid to a US$10,000 shopping spree. 

The 'Hotline Bling' hitmaker has been playing Santa Claus latey, firstly donating more than $20,000 to a Miami High School, then giving one university student a $50,000 scholarship. 

He also paid grocery bills worth $50,000 for supermarket shoppers, but it was his day of luxury for one hotel maid that has really touched hearts. 

People reports that Drake read about hotel housekeeper Odalie Paret in the Miami Herald. The rapper was touched by the story of the Paret, who reportedly has a four-hour, two-bus commute to her job in order to support her five children. 

This week, Paret was gifted a massage at the hotel's spa, followed by dinner at an expensive steakhouse. Then she was taken by car to a Saks Fifth Avenue, where she was met by the rapper and given 45 minutes to buy whatever she wanted in the store. 

People reports she opted for a pair of US$800 comfortable shoes, a US$2000 Valentino handbag and four bottles of perfume.

Drake posted about the experience on Instagram, writing that the "last 3 days were the best I have had in a very long time".

"There's nothing like seeing people experience a joyful moment when you can tell they need it the most."

Paret told Miami Herald the moment she saw the rapper, she recognised him. 

"I always just saw him on the TV. So I said, 'Drake!'" she explained. "It made me happy... I thank him so much."
