Next month, Chicago will be host to the first Obama Foundation Summit. The event will include a concert on the final day, and it will be headlined by Chicago's own Chance The Rapper.
Chance announced Friday (October 13) that he will not only headline the final day's concert, but he is assisting in curating the show, which will be live streamed on the Foundation’s website.
Other performers include Gloria Estefan and indie rock band, The National.
The Obama Foundation’s two-day summit begins on the Oct. 31 and will bring together “civic leaders from around Chicago, the U.S. and the world” to “exchange ideas, explore creative solutions to common problems” as well experiencing art, technology, and music “from around the world.”
In addition, the event hopes to inspire those in attendance (and watching online) to make a “positive impact in their own communities.”
