Santigold Performed at a New Orleans Elementary School
The singer teamed up with VH1 Save the Music and Toyota for a surprise set
Santigold made a surprise appearance yesterday at LaPlace Elementary School, which is located about 45 minutes out of New Orleans, Stereogum reports. In town to perform at Voodoo festival over the weekend, Santi teamed up with with VH1 Save the Music and Toyota, who reportedly gave the school a $30,000 grant to help reinstate their music education program.
During her set, Santigold played her 2008 song “Shove It” and a 2011 track “GO!” She also invited some kids onstage to dance with her for “Creator.” Following her set, the kids had the chance to ask her some questions, which got the singer-songwriter talking about her experience in A&R, how she originally wanted to own a record label, and how much she loves Devo and the Smiths.
