Prince Harry among headliners at Obama Foundation summit


PV International Desk : Former US president Barack Obama and first lady Michelle are planning a star-studded gathering at the end of October, in their ongoing post-White House effort to support future leaders.

Prince Harry, Gloria Estefan, and Chance the Rapper are among the names attending the two-day Chicago summit.

The British royal will address the roughly 500 young civic leaders and community activists chosen from 20,000 applicants from around the world, for what the Obama Foundation promises will be intensive workshops and opportunities to share ideas.

Chance the Rapper and Estefan will perform in a public concert to cap the event.

The gathering in the Obamas’ hometown is being organized by their eponymous foundation, which is also building the former president’s library in the Midwestern US city where Obama got his political start.
