This weekend was another great success for Miami Heat's All-Star, Dwyane Wade, as he hosted Chicago Has Talent showcase which is a part of the 5th Annual Gatorade Wade's World Charity weekend. The highly anticipated talent showcase took place at the Chicago Theatre at 7:30pm and featured Jacob Latimore and Disney Star Coco Jones of the “Let it Shine” Movie. Actress Tika Sumpter & Comedian Lil Rel hosted the kid friendly affair and former Destiny's Child superstar, Michelle Williams showed up in style to judge all of the contestants.
There was so much talent in the air I was in awe. D. Wade really showed that kids do have a voice, you just need to provide them the platform to showcase it. This year the foundation really took the time to focus on initiatives such as; Literacy and Anti-Bullying. Dwyane felt that this was an appropriate time to focus on these area because they are the most critical things going on with the youth.
