Chance is also headlining the Blue Note Jazz Festival on July 28, 29, and 30, in Napa, California. The festival is set to honor the history of over 50 years of the musical genre. "With jazz at its vibrant core, the Blue Note Jazz Festival brings the biggest names in music and culture to the most intimate, small-town setting," its website reads.

As for what songs Chance the Rapper will perform as these concerts, he has many tracks that derive inspiration from his faith. Examples include "Angles" from Coloring Book, "Child of God", and "Holy".
“I don’t make Christian rap, but I am a Christian rapper,” Chance said in a 2017 interview with Teen Vogue. “When I was going out and trying to fully give glory to God, in my setting, I feared that people would be dismissive of it, like, ‘This is Christian rap; I’m not trying to hear it.’ But it’s the total opposite. People were very accepting of it.”
He is also currently working on a new album, and gave some details of its production to TODAY. "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.
