Tierra Whack partnered with Vans Gives A Band! yesterday to present five Philadelphia area public schools with an award of $100K total in musical equipment and to further fund the school’s music programs. Philadelphia native and pioneering musician Tierra Whack, who was schooled in the same system, alongside Vans’s Sr. Manager Brand Marketing, Lifestyle, Brooke Burt, were on hand to present the award Samuel Fels High School, Frankford High School, Philadelphia High School for Girls, John Bartram High School, and South Philadelphia High School.

Each school brought their own flavor to the presentation, with many of the school bands’ performing their own music in kind. Frankford highlighted their drumline, while School For Girls showed their skills on the strings. A Bartram student jumped on stage to show Tierra Whack their rap skills, while the school band performed a Juice WRLD track for the rapturous crowd. The day concluded at South Philadelphia, where their cheer team put on a Cheer worthy display and closed out with a special performance by their resident rap crew.
The event ties in with last fall’s House of Vans Philadelphia Pop-Up as a way to say thank you to the city following the hugely successful experience. The three day event featured a custom made skate park, live music, which Tierra Whack headlined one evening, as well as local food trucks, workshops and markets.
