Will.I.Am Performs for a Good Cause

Black Eyed Peas front man will.i.am will be heading to China later this year to perform in a special benefit concert in Beijing. According to the State Department, the event will benefit cultural and educational ties between the US and China, and hopefully open doors for more American students to study in China and vice versa. The rapper opened up about the opportunities he hopes the event affords for the younger generation, saying “In order to become responsible global citizens, young people need to experience the world around them. Kids from underserved communities rarely have the opportunity to study and travel abroad, and we want to change that. We must make sure that American students have the cultural awareness and skills necessary to succeed in a global economy.” I wish him a lot of success with this.
