Kailand Obasi Morris is impacting his generation in a positive way. The teen recently held his second annual Hoop-Life FriendRaiser event that benefited the ‘All It Takes’ Organization. Kailand’s father, Stevie Wonder, and mother, Kai Milla, gave nothing but support to their son who is working hard to bring about change in the world.
“As I’ve gotten older, I believe I have begun to notice a few things,” said the teenager weeks prior to hosting his fundraiser. “I want things any average kid my age would want. But I am also aware that there are other kids my age less fortunate and I want to help.”
This year’s FriendRaiser definitely benefited underprivileged children as it garnered the support of many celebrities. Some stars served as coaches for the four teams filled with eager children who wanted to compete for major prizes. All members of the winning team received iPad minis along with Beats headphones. Girl group ID4 sang the national anthem before the game kicked off and dozens of celebrities, including , Carlon Jeffrey, J.B Smooth and Angeliques Bates cheered from the crowd as the tournament unfolded.
Kailand is one of seven children that Stevie Wonder fathers. The renowned musician wed Kai in 2001.
