NEW YORK (AP) — A day after earning his high school diploma, an excited Drake performed hit songs at an event for Tyra Banks.

The 25-year-old told the crowd Thursday night that he took a small break from music and "spent some time going back to high school," adding with excitement: "I got my high school diploma." The crowd roared.

The Canadian singer-rapper also posted on Twitter late Wednesday that he earned a 97 percent on his final exam through work with a private tutor. He dropped out of high school, ironically, to star in the high school TV series "Degrassi: The Next Generation."

Drake performed at New York's Capitale for Banks' first annual Flawsome Ball for The Tyra Banks TZONE Foundation, her organization aimed at developing confidence in girls.
