Common Supports Chicago's Urban Leage Teen REACH Program

Common will play

host to the debut of Chicago Urban League's Teen REACH Music Program as well as

the grand opening of a new South Side Chicago Banking center established by Bank

of America. The

Chicago Urban League's Teen REACH Music Program aims to introduce high school

students to various careers in the music industry. The

after-school and summer program teaches students the intricacies of music production

and music business. A

performance by The Chicago Urban League's "Urban Definition" will highlight

the red carpet event , where Common will also be on hand to sign autographs.

Bank of America will also support the foundation by donating an undisclosed amount

of money to the Chicago Urban League. The

event takes place today (Aug. 2) from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm at 69th Street and S.

Ashland Avenue in Chicago.
