As a hip hop DJ and emcee who became widely recognized after performing at the White House to launch first lady Michelle Obama's "Let's Move" campaign, DJ Willy Wow has been performing and making music non-stop thanks to the passion he's developed from seeing what a big positive impact his music has on the lives of kids (and adults)! As Willy explains,
**"What I really do is try to reach the child inside all of us. All of us have experienced some type of joy of childhood. That's in each and every one of us. So if I can give something to the young at heart every time I perform, that's what I'm all about. I want to be able to touch the young at heart, no matter how old you are, no matter where you're from, I want to be able to reach that inner child that will make you wanna dance, have a good time, be thought-provoking and make the world a better place."**
This passion is why stars like Tyrese, Brian McCann and Mark DeRosa call on Willy Wow to do the little kid turn-up right for their special occasions. Now he's compiled all his most engaging music into new album And the Crowd Goes WOW! so that EVERY child can experience the joy of a Willy Wow party. And The Crowd Goes WOW! showcases the topics kids love to sing and rap about most while providing a meaningful education along the way, including a song featuring the legendary Chuck D all about the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., "MLK That Way."
