Unknown to the Soul Children, this performance caught the eye of another Hollywood Mogul – Queen Latifah – who lined up a special surprise for the group. As seen September 18th on her new show, Queen Latifah flew to Chicago to invite the group to perform with her on stage at a sold-out show at the Hollywood Bowl. The heart-touching segment, which aired last Wednesday, shines light on the amazing work that choir leader, Walt Whitman, is doing on the South Side of Chicago.
Mr. Walter Whitman and The Soul Children of Chicago are dedicated to encouraging our youth and providing hope and inspiration in a world filled with challenges and despair. Even though statistical odds are against them as youth growing up in the inner city of Chicago, for over 30 years members of SCC have far exceeded and excelled in the arts and academia proving that all things are possible.
The secret is out – and this group is ready to share their mission with the world. Whitman developed this world-class performance group with a single purpose: to utilize music as a motivator and catalyst to inspire young people throughout the world to have faith in themselves and each other. How they have managed to stay under the radar for this long is a mystery!
Mr. Whitman is currently available for interviews for those interested in learning more about this inspirational group and their exciting adventures.
