Chicago, IL â€“ High schoolers at the Harold Washington Library Center in Chicago, Illinois got a special treat on Monday (June 11). Childish GambinoÂ (aka Donald Glover) stopped by to perform his hit song â€śThis is Americaâ€ť for the students attendingÂ Chance The Rapperâ€™s Open Mike Chicago event.
Chance â€” who has been teasing the possibility of a joint mixtape with the AtlantaÂ creator for some time now â€” told the crowd his next guest needed no introduction. Soon after, the crowd began rushing the stage as â€śThis Is Americaâ€ť began to play over the speakers.
The Open Mike event, which is put on by Chanceâ€™s SocialWorks charity, is designed to encourage youth participation in the arts.
Check out footage of the performance below.
