- Cordae has partnered with Disney Dreamers Academy and ESPN’s The Undefeated to award scholarships to youth from underrepresented communities attending Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs).
- Cordae is featured on Liberated / Music For The Movement Volume 3 with his song “What is Life,” and will be donating his proceeds from the Liberated EP, which releases this Friday, June 18, to fund the scholarships.
- Cordae will appear as a special guest on Friday’s episode of Stephen A's World on ESPN+, featuring a performance of “What’s Life” in celebration of Juneteenth. He will also perform the song and present an award at ESPN's Sports Humanitarian Awards.
What They’re Saying:
- Cordae: "So many people need the money more than I do. I feel as though when you're in such a blessed position, it's important to pay that forward to be a blessing to others. It's especially important to me to invest in our youth and the future. Young people are the future of our society and the world, so we must do all we can to ensure they are properly positioned to succeed. If I can spark the brain of a few future world leaders and geniuses, I'll die a happy man."
