Ne-Yo visited the 600 students, who won the Get Schooled Foundation’s National Attendance Challenge, which challenged the students to increase their daily attendance rates.
“I am happy to partner with the Get Schooled Foundation to encourage attendance and education. It’s so important to show up, be present and pay attention so your dream becomes a successful reality,” Ne-Yo told AllHipHop.com.
During the day, Ne-Yo taught math, spoke to students about the importance of attending school and other important issues affecting students.
By the end of the day, Ne-Yo had performed his hit singles “One in a Million” and “Miss Independent” the students.
