Chance the Rapper is hosting a free concert in Chicago today
is ficially music’s gift that keeps on giving.
His compassion for his hometown Chicago is genuinely heart-warming. After announcing that he’ll be hosting a free concert, today August 12, deemed #BBBash, Chance then proceeded to share in an on-camera interview with ABC 7 Chicago he would be handing out free tickets beforehand.
The free show is set to follow Chicago’s annual Bud Billiken parade set to culminate with a picnic at Washington Park —one the city’s oldest and largest celebrations amongst African-Americans in the country— which Chance will be the grand marshal. He previously took to Twitter to ask Chicago public school teachers attending the parade to wear red in an effort to locate them to pass out free tickets to the show and celebrate their hard work and earnest dedication.
On top it all, Chance has also announced his non-prit organization SocialWorks will be giving away 30,000 “stuffed” backpacks to children during the parade.
