Kidz Korna's Music Department

Music has been a great tool for community engagement city-wide with help of Farley Jackmaster Funk, the House Music Icon who has Global Recognition in the Music Industry.  Much of our music outreach projects are more impactful to promote violence prevention initiatives because his of his expertise in Music.


                                         Projects Included:

* KKO Produces the House Music Health fair & DJ training  at McCormick

Convention Center in 2016in 2017 it will take place on July 3rd of 2017 at

the Union Station on Lake and Randolph.


*House & Hip Hop Community Unity Weekend,  a coming together of

two music genres to help support a safety networking effort for parents

and students provide a smooth transition for students to go to new

schools when their schools closed down.

*Voices Against Violence w/ Americas Young Voices this initiative took

place downtown at the Daley Plaza, giving an opportunity for youth to

use their voices through song to bring awareness to innocent murdered

victims on the streets of Chicago.

CHICAGO FOR YOUTH

Community Connection:    Our City-wide initiative was centered in Auburn-Gresham on 79th and Ashland where each corner was considered a different gang turf.  With a spike of murders and shootings much of it being gang related and a  handful of neighborhoods were especially hard hit in homicides.  Through outreach and recruitment, we had lots of Youth & Families in need wanting to be apart of our programs .  We’ve out grown our small location and now looking to secure a permanent location close by that will accommodate all of KKO services.  Other high crime communities we serve are Roseland and Englewood.​

​                            MOST RECENT KIDZ KORNA PROJECT

Last year, Delece Williams and the Kidz Korna youth where awarded some vacant lots in Englewood from the city of Chicago for the work that they do. She is currently seeking donors to help to bring life back into a desolate community. 
In May (Memorial Day Weekend), the goal is to build a Playground and Outdoor Family Venue, to incorporate healthy outdoor activities, summer learning

programs and workshops for youth and families.


This project is in Honor of the Late Cleveland & Ruby

​McDuffy who dedicated their lives to feeding and

housing homeless people in the community for over

​30 years.  A special thanks goes out to Mr. Bradley.

YOUTH EXPO & TOY GIVEAWAY

    WALL OF COURAGE PROJECT

​​Secretly, Delece would get phone calls from kids watching the Kidz Korna Tv show to be rescued out of very abusive situations in their homes.  Numerous Public performance child abuse awareness campaigns were birthed from the phone calls, Delece and the kids formed the Wall of Courage Project and she began bringing the traveling performance project down to the Daley Center on  a yearly basis and to lots 

                                                             of neighborhood festivals as a public outcry to

                                                              advocate on behalf child abuse victims. Much to

                                                              Delece’s surprise  parents would come up and seek out

                                                              ways of getting help from abusing their children. And

                                                              that’s when she partnered with Illinois Prevent Child

                                                              Abuse for solutions.
