Chance Teams Up with MSI To Light The Trees

Chance The Rapper and Socialworks recently teamed up with the Museum of Science and Industry to bring Chicago the 80th annual Christmas Tree Lighting preparing for the Night at The Museum.

The lighting of the tree was created in 1942 during World War II to show all countries, no matter what ethnicity, can come together and become equal, and 80 years the traditional is still going on. The lightning took place this this week at the Museum of Science and Industry and it was packed with many students, and families of different nationalities.

Everyone had a blast. The show kicked off with the President and CEO of the Museum, Chevy Humphrey, who then brought out Chance The Rapper. Once Chance introduced himself he then brought out the Kids of Kingdom Choir who did a phenomenal job at putting us in the holiday mood with there amazing singing of several Christmas songs. After enjoying the choir, Chance stated the countdown for the lightning of the tree.

The kids enjoyed this. They also lined up to take pics with Santa and Chance towards the end of the lightning. You can visit the Museum of Science and industry to take a look at the trees. Trust me it’s worth it.
