Even with all of this in mind, perhaps the most important part of the show was during one of the non-music moments, when a special video message from former President Barack Obama played for those in attendance, thanking Chance for all he's done not only as a humanitarian but as a Chicagoan.

This is the 88th year for the Bud Billiken parade, a chance to celebrate. The position of Grand Marshal is often taken by a celebrity - Chaka Khan took the role in 2014.

"I wanted to just have the chance to say to all of you that the Bud Billiken parade stands for so much of what our community is about", Obama said. "I did it once and I ended up being President, so you never know what might happen".

Earlier in the day, Chance the Rapper's SocialWorks charity distributed 30,000 backpacks filled with school supplies to Chicago children.

He told WLS-TV he wants to "make sure everything is a little easier" for students, teachers and parents. We want to make sure that we are nurturing and protecting and encouraging and loving the next generation of leaders all throughout the city of Chicago.
