What We’re Listening To

Kanye West

Kanye has a foundation that encourages youth to stay in school rather than drop out. On June 11, 2009 the Kanye Foundation partnered with the Highland Park High School in Chicago, IL to perform a free concert for students who were willing to work hard in school and improve their grades. The concert inspired kids to excel academically and to stay focused in life. Kanye is a great artist and humanitarian!

Beyonce Knowles
