Chance the Rapper is currently making his mark as a new Coach on The Voice for Season 23. In a recent interview with TODAY, he opened up about his mentorship techniques and his personal mission as to why he chose to be on the show.
“My main goal on being on the show is trying to help the other Artists bring themselves out of their performances. I wanna give people the opportunity to show their identity, to tell their story through song. It's not so much about turning them into an Artist but just giving them a platform to be themselves, sing the songs they grew up listening to, really just present themselves fully," he explained.
He also gave some details about his upcoming album. “The Star Line Gallery has been well underway. I started it off when I first traveled to Ghana last year, and I met with some of the top contemporary Artists, painters, sculptors, all types of different visual Artists in the world and started creating connections overseas with Artists in Jamaica, and Artists on the continent, and we basically come together and create new pieces,” he said.
