Rapper Will.i.am has linked up with Secretary of State, Hillary Rodham Clinton along with the State Department in order to direct a concert to be held later this year in Beijing, China. In part with President Obama’s, “100,00 Strong Initiative,” (an effort to increase the number of American students in China); the gig will strongly aid to endorse both educational and cultural relations between the two countries.
Will.i.am released a statement on the matter saying, “In order to become responsible global citizens, young people need to experience the world around them.” He added, “We must make sure that American students have the cultural awareness and skills necessary to succeed in a global economy.”
Will is definitely making some power moves. Considering him and Oprah are official bffs – why not rock the political boat.
Of course, MSDTV will keep you posted. Stay Tuned…
