Recording artist Chance the Rapper is making a $1 million donation to Chicago Public Schools and is calling on major corporations to do the same.
“Today, I am proud to announce I am donating $1 million to Chicago public schools,” he said, urging corporations to join him.
Chance’s efforts caught the attention of former first lady Michelle Obama, who lauded the artist via Twitter. “Thanks @chancetherapper for giving back to the Chicago community, which gave us so much,” Obama wrote, tagging the fellow Chicago native. “You are an example of the power of arts education.”
