Obama Says He Envisions Opening A Recording Studio In Chicago


Former President Obama and Michelle Obama met with several hundred people on the Southside of Chicago to reveal his Obama Presidential Center, a $500 Million project that should be completed by 2021.

Mr. Obama said it would be “A transformational project for this community.”

The center would be located in Jackson Park. The lakefront park already includes the Museum of Science and Industry, a beach, golf courses and athletic facilities.

The center would feature a library with a children’s play area, a community garden, and food trucks, with grills so people could barbecue.

The most interesting part of Mr. Obama‘s speech came when he brought up the Music & Film aspect of his Presidential Center.

Mr. Obama said, “A studio where I can invite Spike Lee and Steven Spielberg to do workshops on how to make films,” and “a recording studio where I could invite Chance (The Rapper) or Bruce Springsteen, depending on your tastes, to talk about how you could record music that has social commentary and meaning.”

Great job Mr. Obama, we love to see music playing an integral part of the community ?
