Chance the rapper is always finding new ways to give back, but this past Sunday he used his birthday party to rake in over $100,000 for charity.
On April 16th, the Chicago native celebrated his 24th birthday in the Chi at Studio Paris Nightclub with friends, family and fans. The sold-out extravaganza ran from 9 pm – 2 am and featured performances by Ludacris and T-Pain. All proceeds from the party went to benefit SocialWorks, his nonprofit organization.
Fans and celebrities alike jammed to classic hip-hop joints such as Ludacris’ 2001 “Move Bitch” and T-Pain’s iconic “Buy You A Drank” hit. Chance joined in for a finale of “All I Do Is Win” with the crowd.
T-Pain ended his performance by making a special speech dedicated to Chance, thanking him for all he’s done for music and the community. Chance also took the time to emphasize to his fans the importance of giving back, stating “We’re in a time of crisis, it’s important that good people stand up and make a change.”
This is just another great initiative from Chance, as he’s is no stranger to philanthropy. Recently, he donated $1 million to Chicago Public Schools.
The three-time Grammy winner used all proceeds for his nonprofit, SocialWorks, whose mission is to empower youth and young adults through education and civic engagement.
