Chicago Students Pen Heartfelt Thank You Letter to Chance the Rapper

UPDATE: Last week, Chance the Rapper made a $1 million donation to Chicago public schools. This week, the students’ thank you letter is bringing us to tears.

Three 10th grade students from Lake View High School wrote an open letter that they shared with Billboard. In it, they express their gratitude in the most heartfelt way.

Lake View students Alex Rojas, Alondra Cerros and Annelisse Betancourt.

“All of the things that you do for our city never go unnoticed,” they wrote. “We look up to you because the fame usually takes humility away from artists, but it hasn’t changed you.”

Later in the letter, they wrote, “You’re more than just an artist to us, you are a way of life. You make music that we can relate to on many levels, because you know what living in Chicago is like, and you want to make changes in the city. We may not be from the same side but we come from the same city.”
