 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.

I love an entertainer who gives back and he's one of the BEST so buy your tickets here (or email or call  773-295-1915 and help him make Chicago a better place!
