Above are images of the 1st Annual Party in Peace Community Concert.
Yesterday we went out to Ogden Park in the heart of Englewood for the 1st Annual Party In Peace Community Concert. It was a great event for a great cause.
The afternoon began with some giveaways for the kids including bookbags & school supplies. DJ VDub was on deck to provide music as everybody made their way into the festivities & were treated to free food. Once everyone had gotten a chance to eat, the host Chella H made her way to the stage to bring on the many local acts set to perform. We also received some words of wisdom from Switching Lanes CEO, Larry Hoover Jr. We witnessed performances by Chicago talent such as DA, Keyani, & Broadway, all of whom received special gifts of free videos & studio time from Chella H, as well as Hood Geekz, Taia Gabrielle, Danni Gurl, The Rap Game’s Nia Kay, Queen Key, & Englewood’s own Spenzo.
The kids were all turnt up for the free show which was courtesy of sponsors Super Giant Entertainment, Bridging the Gap Globally, Big Homies Club, Ogden Park Advisory Council, Switching Lanes & We R Englewood. We would like to personally thank all of the sponsors & organizers for putting together such a positive event & showing that there is much more to Englewood than people think. We absolutely partied in peace & got an opportunity to see all of the talent our city has to offer. We cannot wait for next year’s event.
This is just one of the many positive events taking place in Englewood. On August 27th, there will be the annual Back to School parade through Englewood & in October the Englewood 5K will be returning. Keep your eyes & ears open for these wonderful events & come out & support the good things going on. Contrary to popular belief, you can go into Englewood & have a peaceful, good time.
