Chloe X Halle are not only two of the most stylish and talented young people on the music scene today, but they are also two of the most altruistic and kind-hearted individuals that represent their generation well.
The two sisters teamed up with Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment’s SING to help present a donation to the first of four schools that will help to restore their music programs. On December 14th, not only did the sisters help present the funds to Olive Vista Middle School in Sylmar, CA, but the duo was on hand for a featured live performance and a Q&A session with SING executive music producer Harvey Mason Jr. In addition to Olive Vista Middle School, an additional school in Los Angeles, Steven Middle School, and two in New York, PS 188 The Island School and MS 158 Marie Curie will receive funding. Universal Pictures, Illumination Entertainment’s, and VH1 Save the Music Foundation will donate $40,000 to each of these schools.
SING, due out in theaters December 21, 2016, is a 3D computer-animated musical comedy written and directed by Garth Jennings and co-directed by Christophe Lourdelet. The film boasts a power-house line-up of A-list actors including Matthew McConaughey, Reese Witherspoon, Seth MacFarlane, Scarlett Johansson, John C. Reilly, Tori Kelly, Taron Egerton and Nick Kroll. The movie will feature 85 songs from famous artists across many genres, including an original song by Stevie Wonder and Ariana Grande. In addition to the primary donation, if social media users share the social media badge below with the hashtag #SingForSchools, SING will donate $1 each share to restore music programs in schools—so, if you would, share and help save music!
