The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) was excited to welcome back one of its most frequent visitors, Flo Rida! A large crowd of patients wasted no time asking the singer about a range of topics from early childhood influences to favorite foods.
Having grown up in a house of musicians, Flo Rida was heavily influenced by his family to pursue a musical career, following in the footsteps of some of his own idols, LL Cool J and Michael Jackson. Patients, however, were surprised to learn that Flo Rida not only once considered becoming a basketball player, but he even received a degree from Las Vegas University in business!
These days Flo Rida has had some incredible traveling opportunities including a recent trip to New Orleans, where he got to enjoy some seafood gumbo and some of his personal favorite dishes, shrimp alfredo and vanilla ice cream! The ideal destination though will always stay Miami, Florida, where Flo Rida’s family still resides. And what better way to pass all that traveling time than with a favorite film like Eddie Murphy’s Coming to America, new release Straight Outta Compton, and of course the classic Disney movie, The Lion King.
Always staying busy, Flo Rida plans to continuing to develop FloFit, his new fitness program, and signing new artists to his very own record label. With no limit to future ambitions, there may even be an acting career down the line. Taking cues from his favorite actor, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, we may even see the beginnings of the next action star. We can’t wait to hear about it during his next visit to CHOP! Good luck with your new music, Flo Rida and be sure to keep working on those selfie stick skills!
