Chicago Poet-Athletes featured on Fox Chicago

Posted by Admin On December - 22 - 2010

America SCORES Chicago students have done something only a few daydream of: writing and professionally recording a song.

Through a national partnership with ASCAP, a handful of students from Chalmers Elementary met with producer The Legendary Traxter to write, perform and record “We Are the Future,” a song about their hopes, fears and dreams.

Their story and song was featured on FOX Chicago News. Over three weeks, the students met with Traxter and his writing team to learn about the songwriting process, how melodies and beats are made, and how to work collaboratively with a creative team.  On their last day together, students took a trip downtown to record “We Are the Future” in a professional studio.

Their single will be released on ASCAP’s America SCORES compilation album early in 2011.
