Michelle Obama and Chance The Rapper share a hometown in Chicago, and the former FLOTUS is beyond proud of the philanthropic efforts of Chance for their city.

Just yesterday, the rapper donated a staggering $1 million to the Chicago Public School system (specifically for the arts,) following a disappointing meeting with Illinois Governor Bruce Rauner about the CPS on Friday. He also set up a fundraiser where for every $100k raised, he will match it with $10k.

Of course everyone was impressed and praising him, and one of those people was Mrs. O herself.

“Thanks @chancetherapper for giving back to the Chicago community, which gave us so much,” Michelle wrote. “You are an example of the power of arts education.”
