Chance isn't just changing the rap game, he's on a mission to change the education system as well.
It became the first streaming-only album to win a Grammy, and Chance was named Best New Artist. The 24- year-old, who is in the middle of a 37-city tour, brings his winning streak to the ESSENCE Festival on July 2.
As much as fans adore Chance, that love is well reciprocated: The performer personally donated $1 million to Chicago public schools.
He boasts, “Music is all we got.” Thankfully, we also have Chance.
