Chance The Rapper and his team continue to do positive things for the kids.
How dope is that?
The program will be a part of Kids of the Kingdom, a long-running Chicago program that was founded at Emerald Avenue Church in 1977 by Sister Gladys Bennett. Kids Of the Kingdoms goal is to provide an outlet for recreation, socialization, and expression for Chicago youth throughout the summer with interactive events, field trips, and dynamic lesson plans. SocialWorks will utilize Landr as part of the Kids of the Kingdom Summer Music Academy sessions, which will be made up of 75 Chicago-area kids.
The camp isn’t where the partnership stops either, between June 6-20 Landr will also donate $1 to SocialWorks for every new user who masters a track with its software in addition to donating 10 percent of all purchases to the organization.
“The pursuit of creating art is a universally honest and necessary expression of our hopes, dreams, and emotions— art is rooted in our innate sense of curiosity, none more so than from the infinite imagination of our youth. However, these journeys of personal expression are never just black and white, and not every voice gets heard. That’s why SocialWorks and LANDR are launching a summer program to provide students in Chicago the necessary tools to tell their stories to the world. Together, we’ll shape the musicians of tomorrow, by supporting the kids today.” – Chance The Rapper
