Chance the Rapper Literally Marches Hundreds of Fans to the Polls
Chance the Rapper yet again showed out for his city by organizing and headlining a free concert in Chicago’s Grant Park to encourage people to vote. But the more impressive part came immediately after when he led hundreds of concert-goers through the streets, with the help of Black Youth Project 100 organizers, to an early voting facility. The event was dubbed as a “Parade to the Polls.”

The show also included performances from poet Malcolm London, Twin Peaks and Taylor Bennett, among others.
Just over a month ago, the Chatham rapper hosted a one-day music festival at U.S. Cellular Field and partnered with the NAACP to register voters in attendance.
Chance’s efforts to motivate the youth vote may only be rivaled by his unofficial aunt and uncle, Beyoncé and Jay Z, who not only endorsed Hillary Clinton but performed at a rally in Cleveland.
“I want my daughter to grow up seeing a woman lead our country, and know that her possibilities are limitless,” Beyoncé said onstage, according to CNN. “We have to think about the future of our daughters, our sons. And that is why I’m with her.”
