This Saturday, February, 18, “Black Thought,” co-founder and lead MC of Philly’s own The Roots, will host “Let’s Move it Philly!”, a charity concert party to raise funds for the GrassROOTS Community Foundation.
Guests will party to the sounds of Rich Medina, DJ Diamond Kuts, Nikki Jean, Money Making Jam Boys, Questlove and Black Thought of the legendary Roots Crew at the historic Sigma Sound Stage.
“Let’s Move It!” Philadelphia is the first step in a 13-city initiative that will address childhood obesity in the African American community. Almost one in every three children in our nation is obese or overweight; these rates are even higher in African American and Hispanic communities.
“Let’s Move It Philly!” aims to use hip-hop music as a means to spread awareness about this epidemic. Proceeds from the 2012 concert will benefit C.H.I.C.K.S. (Creating Healthy Informed Confident Knowledgeable Selves) a GrassROOTS after school program for girls at Harding Middle School in Frankford.
Doors open at 8 p.m. You can purchase tickets online.
