We need as much joy in the world as Childish Gambino brought to these kids

Music just has so much power — and kids need music as much as anyone. It gives them an outlet for their struggles and their creativity. It gives them a way to express themselves positively. In artists, gives them role models to look up to. Anyone who brings kids and music together is doing some great work. And as of this week, that includes Donald Glover, a.k.a. Childish Gambino.

Glover gave a surprise performance to graduating seniors in Chicago at the Harold Washington Library Center, basically making their day forever. The videos are everything. I’m not crying; you’re crying.
