Chance The Rapper’s Production Company to Organize Special Olympics 50th Anniversary Concert
Chance The Rapper is kicking his philanthropic efforts up a notch as part of his newest partnership with the Special Olympics. The "No Problems" rapper is set to produce a celebration concert honoring the organization's 50th anniversary in Chicago.
Early Thursday afternoon (June 14), Chance shared the exciting news with his over 7 million followers via Twitter. "I'm happy to announce that my new production company SFP and I are producing the 50th anniversary here in Chicago," he wrote along with a photo of the concert's official bill. So far, the list of performers include the legendary Smokey Robinson, Jason Mraz, O.A.R. and a few other headliners that have yet to be named.
The news of the concert comes just a few days after Chance announced the launch of his Social Functions Productions company. While there isn't much information readily available about the new venture, we're pretty certain Chano has a ton of dope activations up his sleeve.
This isn't the first time Chance has done some social good for his beloved city of Chicago. Just a few weeks ago, the Coloring Book rapper surprised local area high school students and with a live performance from Childish Gambino during his monthly Open Mike night. Earlier this year, Chano also generously donated to charity to celebrate his 25th birthday.
