Watch a college marching band cover Kanye West and Rihanna songs

Florida A&M University have also taken on songs by Drake, Chance The Rapper and Future

A college marching band in Florida covered songs by Rihanna and Kanye West during one of the school’s recent American football matches.

During Florida A&M University’s home game against Tuskegee University on Saturday (September 17), its marching band delivered performances of West’s ‘Father Stretch My Hands Pt. 1’, Rihanna’s ‘Kiss It Better’ and Chance The Rapper’s ‘No Problem’.

During the match, which the home team sadly lost, the marching band also gave performances of other popular tracks by Future (‘March Madness’), Lauryn Hill (‘Doo-Wop (That Thing)’ and T-Pain (‘Dance Floor’).

Meanwhile, at his Saint Pablo Tour gig in nearby Miami over the weekend, Kanye West serenaded a fan who had brought tears to his eyes.

During the show, the rapper spotted a fan wearing a T-shirt with his late mother Donda’s face on it and a tattoo of his ‘Runaway’ album artwork. Kanye stopped the gig to say: “The girl with the ‘In loving memory of’ and the ‘Runaway’ tattoo right here. You literally brought tears to my eyes”. After asking for her name, which was Crystal, West proceeded to work the fan’s name into a song.
