Please enjoy more photos of the incredible evening 5th graders from PS130 experienced on May 30, 2013 when they performed at the Annual ArtsConnection Benefit at Tribeca Rooftops in Manhattan.
They even had a backstage celebrity visitor, Russell Simmons, who talked to them about inspiration, art, following their dreams, and perseverance. Russell Wendell Simmons is an American business magnate. He and Rick Rubin founded the pioneering hip-hop label Def Jam. He also created the clothing fashion lines Phat Farm, Argyleculture, and American Classics.
