Anderson .Paak lights up any room he walks into.
On Saturday, December 2nd, the 8x-Grammy winning singer, songwriter, and recording artist graced the red carpet at the Get Lit Gala, which took place at The Skirball Cultural Center in Los Angeles. The event was presented by Get Lit- Words Ignite, a Los Angeles-based education nonprofit who has made it their mission to increase literacy, mobilize youth, and energize communities. Through poetry and visual media, they’re able to make a difference in the lives of young people.
As we were awaiting Anderson’s highly-anticipated arrival, you couldn’t help but appreciate the coveted items being sold in the auction. As soon as Anderson arrived, he blessed the red carpet with his bubbly, outgoing personality, even throwing down some dance moves for the cameras on site.
