We all love Chicago native/awesome hip-hop artist/actor Common for his music but we also love him for his big heart! On Saturday, March 29, he will be hosting "Masterpiece/Masterpeace", an awards gala and fundraiser at the Fairmont to benefit his Common Ground Foundation which raises funds to impact youth (ages 13-15) from Chicago's south and west side communities.
Through Common's "Dreamers & Believers, Youth Mentoring Program and Summer Camp" kids are exposed to creative arts that offer new opportunities and possibilities.
(To see the excitement from last year's event with Magic Johnson, see my Watch312.com video below!)
