Chance the Rapper, the National and Gloria Estefan have been announced as the set of performers for the closing events of the Obama Foundation Summit in Chicago.

Chance the Rapper previously appeared onstage with Barack Obama at the annual National Christmas Tree Lighting ceremony in Washington, D.C., in December 2016.

David Simas, Chief Executive Officer of the Obama Foundation, said in a statement, "The Obama Foundation's goal is to encourage and empower young people to create positive change in their communities". During this inaugural Summit, hundreds of leaders from around the world will come together to exchange ideas, explore creative solutions to common problems, and experience civic art, technology, and music from around the world.

Among the attendees highlighted by the foundation was Trisha Shetty of India, who started the organization SheSays to combat sexual abuse against women.

"It's such an honor to be able to help creative direct this show", Chance said in the announcement of the concert.

Other notable speakers was Matteo Renzi, the former Italian prime minister, and Hamdi Ulukaya, founder of the Chobani yogurt brand. "One that is inspired not just to talk about what needs to be changed - but get up and change it".
