Chloe x Halle, fresh off of their tour with mentor and protégé, Beyoncé, joined Black Girls Rock, the Bronx Community Charter School, and the Frederick Douglass Academy, lending their voices, ahead of the Annual Global Citizens Festival, at Milk Studios in New York, City, to give a sneak peek of Google’s innovative on-stage integration using code.
“Technology has played such a big part in our lives being young musicians and young girls,” Halle told the excited group of girls. “We just want to learn, but also we want to take it into our own hands and do it at our own pace.”
Social media platforms like Snapchat, Instagram, Facebook, and YouTube, the vehicle that helped the sisters be discovered, help them to communicate with fans. “I’m on all of those all the time,” Chloe said. “We get to interact with beautiful people and raise awareness for what we truly believe in like racial injustice and gender equality. Without code, we would not be able to raise our voices the way we do, we would not be able to make music the way we do.”
Google believes that the sisters are the perfect role models to encourage girls to learn how to code and are excited about having them as a part of their non-profit movement, “Made with Code”. Made with Code is a movement to inspire millions of girls to learn to code and help them to see computer science as a means to pursue their dream careers.
“It’s just young girls coming together and learning how to do something that is so male-dominated,” Halle said in reference to coding. “But we can get in there and we can put our voices up as young females.”
According to Google, Chloe is also in the process of taking a coding class herself to learn website design. To learn more about Made with Code, visit their website.
