Kendrick Lamar Performs “i” in Toronto

blame it on Shake October 3, 2014

Earlier today, 20,000 youth, educators and guests took part in the annual We Day event in Toronto. Started in 2007, the festivities were created to bring a generation together — dedicated educating, engaging and empowering socially conscious youth to become agents of change.

Joining the likes of Kardinal Offishall and Nelly Furtado, was none other than Kendrick Lamar, who performed his uplifting new single “i” for the first time in front of a live crowd. Check out the performance below and head to We Day’s official site for a complete recap of the event.

We Day is the movement of our time, empowering a generation of young global citizens through an inspirational event and a year-long educational initiative called We Act, which offers curricular resources, campaigns and materials to help turn the day’s inspiration into sustained activation.

We Act is the blueprint for young people to take action as agents of social change.

Why? Because we believe that we are the first generation that can truly end the worst forms of poverty, embrace we thinking and we acting and remove the barriers to youth being agents of social change. And there’s no time to waste: every single day we have the opportunity to make this world a better place. And everyone has a role to play.
